Ok, to give you a non-joke answer.

The best training I got in the army, wasn't military centric. Did a course called Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), after we had a soldier in our unit hang herself.

I've used the lessons from that training much more than I ever expected, both in and out of the army.

You guys actually paid attention. I was just waiting for the next smoke break,

On a serious note. I liked the combat lifesaver course. I almost caused a guy to bleed to death giving him an IV. Blood was everywhere.

My arm looked worse than a 10 year veteran of heroin following our combat lifesaver course. I'd rather be OC sprayed again than let another grunt dig around in my arm again.

Ranger School.

Best, most professionally ran course that showed me how far the mind can push the body? SERE. #lifeskills (Don't ask for more info. I'm not saying anything else). Go experience it.
