I was assistant instructor for a class tonight on transporting a casualty. Buddy carries, improvised litters, things like that. Just to see if I could, I had the biggest guy in the platoon, about 6'2" or so, 287 pounds lie down and play dead. No help, just dead weight. I successfully got him onto my shoulder and fireman carried him. Now, there is a technique to it, which is the point I was making to the class, but let me tell you, going from one knee to an ass-touching-your-heels deep squat to walking with the dead weight of a guy who outweighs you by 65 pounds just flat sucks. But, I got it done and am pretty happy about it.

My back hurts.
