Greg gives us his impression of being on a jet ski for the first time. All the while, low flying aircraft are buzzing across the tops of our heads.
Practicing with the radios. Trying to figure out how the guys can take their hands off the throttle /handle bars long enough to use the radio to talk to the other rider and the driver sitting in the truck. And where's the best location for the communications equipment in an emergency.
Here we are training. . freezing . . and having a great time. Trying not to get more water in our wetsuits that we can handle.
The Marines talk about how everyone needs a team. We all do better with someone watching our back wether it's in sports, in the military, out having a good time, and in all of life.
We decided to put on two gear boxes to keep all the wet gear away from all the electronics we need to bring for long car/jet ski rides. There's a huge space at the front of the trailer so the guys will be installing the first of the boxes.
The guys talk about the amazing things veterans achieve during their years of service and how that SHOULD continue once they've returned to civilian life. The best thing to do is find a new team, a new family, so you can recapture the feelings you had and self of camaraderie. Don't ever let yourself fall into being alone and lost.
Apparently, if you're driving a racing jet ski at a high speed out in the open water . . you can still accidentally crash into your wing man . . lesson learned. No more rear view mirror.
The jet skis got successfully into the water . . . then they realized they didn't have the keys. The guys prove that being out with your buddies and having fun is the best thing in the world.
The guys are went out for the first time with the new Kawasaki jet ski. It's getting cold. The wet suits are gonna be put to the test . . . as well as the endurance of the Marines.
The guys give advice on how to workout out with a disabled vet and what it's like to be a veteran with limitations.
PK took the ski out for the first time. It's a racing jet ski and he had a blast getting used to its controls. Big thanks to the Naval Academy for having a great place to put in the water. Great day!
