Field Pack List For Reservist Training and MOB Manning

After 6 years of being a civilian after my ORD days, I am finally being called back for 17 days of Reservist Training. This, in turn, starts my 10 years Reservist Cycle and so… since I am 27 years old now, by 37 years old – no more active participation in the Army!

Given a chance to talk about my experiences in the Army can take many months and many posts but I will leave it to future posting.

For now, as a start and giving back to some of the readers here – I have prepared a Field Pack List for your reference, a small note though, this may differ a bit here and there from your attached unit.
