Scanning a nearby building for enemy activity, 1st Sgt. David Brockett, an eighth-grade history teacher and 22-year Army veteran from Delaware, Ohio, provides cover for other squads moving through the mock village of Cedal. Brockett's primary role during the cordon and search exercise was casualty collection and enemy prisoner of war detainment. The cordon and search was part of Combat Training Exercise 91 13-01, which is planned and coordinated by the 91st Training Division (Operations) at Fort Hunter-Liggett, Calif. The exercise gives participating units an opportunity to rehearse military maneuvers and tactics such as base security, convoy operations and battle reaction drills during simulated enemy attacks as well as apply their military occupational specialty skills in a theater of operations. The exercise provides realistic training to units to successfully meet the challenges of an extended and integrated battlefield. (Photo by Army Sgt. William A.
