During the trip, Riptide was privileged to witness 1st Battalion, 8th Marines (1/8th) use the Combined Arms Staff Trainer (CAST) facility and CACCTUS in particular to prepare for their Battalion Assault Course or “BAC” the culminating event for a Marine Corps Infantry Battalion as they complete four weeks of training at Twentynine Palms, California in preparation for deployment overseas.
