This image from taken from a December 2021 SOFREP article written by Geo Hand. It looks like it could be from a really bad fraternity hazing, but actually, it was taken during SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) training.

At SERE school, you get to feel what it’s like to have a black bag placed over your head (stuffy) and be isolated from your fellow soldiers.  Geo talks about the isolation he endured during SERE training:

As a student in SERE training, I was first isolated from all other students with a black hood over my head. From there, my isolation went to a deeper state of apparent Solitary (confinement) where I was stuffed into a very small wooden box whose dimensions didn’t allow full limb extension or the ability to sit up fully erect. In the top was a hole just large enough to squeeze the average head through — woe was me!

That’s just a small taste of Geo’s article, “How Delta Force Taught Social Distancing Before It Was Cool.” 

Go check it out; you’ll be glad you did.

Until then, enjoy this bit of movie magic.
