Since most of us Sailors remember our own “Confidence Chamber” experience in boot camp, I thought it would be fitting to share this video of a U.S. Army Chemical Soldier, CPL Creston Jordan Jones, who reenlisted this month in the Gas Chamber.
CPL Jones completed the Enlistment oath along with his reenlisting officer in just under 1 minute and 15 seconds, while their bodies were under attack from C.S., a.k.a. “Tear Gas”.
He then uploaded the video to Facebook, where it has gone viral and currently has 963,000 views in just 2 days since its original post.
Here’s the video:
Chances are you’re now nostalgic about your own Confidence Chamber experience. Here’s a decent video from what looks like a Repair Locker Leader (RLL) course, but they dont spend much time with their masks off.
It seems I remember some Sailors singing Anchors Aweigh with my mask off…
Nonetheless, I have much respect for CPL Jones.
First, for taking the oath, but second, for showing commitment to his craft as a chemical soldier.
Hooah, brother! Thanks for raising your right hand.
What do you remember about your Confidence Chamber experience?
