Rep. Aaron Schock #almostdrowned

Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) took to Instagram Friday to document his recent trip to West Point Academy in New York. Schock wrote that he was challenged by cadets to complete the Combat Water Survival Lab, a requirement for graduation. He tagged the photo #goarmy and #almostdrowned. Thank God he didn’t.

ICYMI, you’re welcome:


Challenged by cadets at West Point to complete the Combat Water Survival Lab which is their toughest requirement for graduation. The associated press describes it as "Perhaps the mother of all swim tests – Survival Gate # 4 – can be found at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Weighed down by heavy equipment, cadets must perform several tasks in a pool amid simulated battlefield chaos. Artificial fog, rain, and deafening noise are pumped in, darkness is punctuated only by strobe lights, and the water is churned by artificial wave makers.” #almostdrowned #goarmy
