TOPT selection course phase II

As tactical air control party (TACP) officer candidates head into a mock-deployment tactical village the cadre carrying out the exercise set off M84 stun grenades and simulation tear gas grenades to create a stressful environment in which the candidates are evaluated during TOPT selection course phase II, on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Aug. 27, 2019. During this phase of selection, experienced TACP officer and enlisted cadre assess candidates throughout a week during 15 graded events that target the specific personality and character attributes that correlate with success in the TACP community.
