Specials Tactics Airmen from the 24th Special Operations Wing endured a grueling ‘Monster Mash’ training event, June 11, 2015, on Spectre Island on Eglin Range, Fla. Monster Mash is a long-standing special tactics training tradition, consisting of an obstacle course where special operators complete timed scenarios at different stations of core mission training. Six different stations along the route tasked Airmen with an amphibious infiltration jump in the Santa Rosa Sound, a ruck march, supplying coordinates to supporting aircraft, locating and exfiltration of a casualty, paddling a Zodiac boat approximately one-half mile across the Sound and memorial pushups.
