Fred Silhol, the lead Mobile Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Interactive Trainer, or MCIT, site trainer, shows cadets the tools and materials used to create improvised explosive devices. This section of the Mobile Counter-IED Trainer even has the appearance of a workshop where insurgents would craft the deadly devices. The MCIT was developed out of the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, and provides state-of-the-art training technology for service members to better understand the enemy's mindset and how to combat the IEDs.
