The Army Sniper Course is a seven-week course in which students undergo rigorous training to become the most feared weapon on the battlefield!
One portion of the course is the Ghillie Weathering Exercise, known as the "Ghillie Wash."
The wash is all about building durability in a Sniper student’s Ghillie Suit, and building endurance, tenacity and confidence in themselves.
