Combat Water Survival Test
A Clemson University Reserve Officers Training Corps cadet steps off a five-meter diving board - blindfolded - during the Combat Water Survival Test in the Fike Recreation Center Jan. 29, 2015. Cadets had to maintain control of their weapon after hitting the water and return to the side of the pool with it to pass the event. The CWST evaluates each cadet’s stamina in water and their ability to complete three stations while wearing a uniform. Passing the events helps ensure they have the fundamental water survival skills necessary to lead soldiers in a hostile environment where there’s water. (Photo by Ken Scar)
