My son is going to SERE tomorrow in Maine... I know he will be ok but it worries me it will be so cold there these next two weeks. Anyone out there who had aviators who attended SERE during the winter?
I have not but I will definitely say a prayer for him! He's got this!
My son went to SERE in Maine the winter. You have no reason to worry. Your son will be fine.
Thanks Chris for your reply and your suport. I appreciate it.
My DS did SERE in the desert in the summer, so no, but the staff are watching them closely. I won't say don't worry...hah...not possible. But he will make it. They won't let real harm happen. But, I do remember that first phone call afterwards. Major relief. Prayer and distraction got me through. Hang in there.
Thanks Cheri for your support. Desert in the summer sounds just as bad as Maine in the winter! HA! Yes, as my son told me, they spent too much money on me to get me to this point to let anything hapen to me. So I am not exactly worried, too much....
Just wanted to let you know that my son made it through SERE. But it was very cold, sub zero temperatures the whole time.
BZ to your son - what a warrior! I can't even imagine what that would be like in such cold weather. brrrrrr
He said one night his feet were so cold he could not go to sleep. About 5 of them got frostbite on their hands and feet and two of them had to leave SERE due to that. Luckily he was not one of them!
OMG - that's crazy!
It certainly was!
