At Fort Benning, Georgia there is a facility known as The Infantry School. This is the shoulder patch of The Infantry School. Civilians, even those who are fans of the military, cannot possibly have 1/10 of 1% of an inkling of the incredibly complex and varied curriculum taught there.People think of the Infantry as, well, they pick up a rifle and walk to the front lines and fight. Cannon fodder. But Infantry combat is the most dangerous and intricate, multifaceted endeavor a human being can undertake. You have to know everything, you have to do everything right, and if you do something even a little wrong, or not quite the best way in a given circumstance, which arises in a split second, you may die, or worse, you may get your men killed.So The Infantry School teaches the whole gamut of action, reaction and interaction in ground combat, and with a degree of professionalism that would amaze any civilian and exceed their wildest expectations. Yes, it's weapons and tactics, but it's much, much more than that too. The Infantry School teaches everything from how to crawl to how to think. That's as close as I can come to explaining what this "Follow Me" shoulder patch means.
Please tell your son that I salute him and thank him for his service to our country. - Laura
