We want to take a minute to recognize some of our members for their accomplishments this summer.
While the rest of us were working on Member Training with our local alumni and assets, our three senior members spent much of the summer at LDAC and various other Army training schools. Although we certainly expected them to succeed, we had no idea just how impressive their performances would actually be.
If you’ve read our website, it’s pretty obvious that B-12 is a training organization first. Although we do conduct some complex and interesting operations, we don’t have a “mission” other than to help develop our candidates and members into the leaders that they will be expected to be in the future.
The Quincy Quarries don’t offer the highest cliffs or trickiest climbs in the world, but they are a pretty awesome place to go rappelling and rock climbing without traveling too far from Boston.
They’re also the perfect place to learn high angle rope rigging in a relatively safe and controlled environment.
