“I have a friend who was Navy SEAL. He told me that in an emergency, my performance would always sink to the level of my training. I never truly understood that until I experienced one of the sedation mock emergency drills provided by AAFDO. If you want to really be ready, get their inspection and mock emergency drills. It will be one of the best investments in your career you could ever make.”
