The Group 2 ES & AE Bivouac was a resounding success this past weekend. Over 40 members from the Hampton Roads and Virginia Beach area came together to train in communications, search & rescue. The teams successfully located a simulated aircraft crash beacon and other ground task assignments. VHF and HF communications were setup to communicate with CAP aircraft overhead, ground teams, and to mass formal messages to incident command staff. Other activities included extinguishing small fires, setting up emergency shelter, and dining on field ration MRE's. Sunday Aerospace included completion of full size Hovercraft, rocketry, and drones. Well Done! Semper Vigilans!
