Arrotta suggested that another radio operator (RO), Glenn Earl Prentice, be included to relate some "real world" situations they encountered.
...Prentice, as a Sergeant, was a forward observer/radio operator attached from the 13th Marines.
Their first training session that Arrotta and Prentice
were participants of occurred in September 2006.
Arrotta and Prentice
were invited to see the class perform practical applications of what they had learned in the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Ranges near the Salton Sea in California in April 2007.

Real world situations as you and Glenn
have described stay with them and they will benefit from them in the future.
