Pulaski Grad Completes Army Training Course

Army National Guard Spec. Daniel W. Clemens Jr. has completed the Warrior Transition Course at Fort Sill, Lawton, Okla.

The course teaches basic skills necessary for integration into the Army for all prior-service servicemembers to fully prepare them for Advanced Individual Training or on to their first assignment.

Soldiers undergo much of the same training developed in basic combat training, except it is developed in a program of instruction that lasts five weeks instead of nine. To complete the course, soldiers must complete the Army Physical Fitness Test, with a minimum of 60 points in each event, M-16 weapon qualification, tactical foot marches, tactical field and situational training, and the land navigation course.

Clemens is the son of Tina M. Clemens of NYS Route 3, Pulaski, N.Y.

The specialist graduated in 2001 from Pulaski Junior-Senior High School, and received an associate degree in 2007 from Wilson Community College, N.C.
