Basic Urban Skills Training (BUST) course

Subject: Marine Corps BUST Street Fighting
James Dunnigan 7/11/2005 12:03:45 AM

The Marine Corps is using the latest "lessons
learned" from Iraq to develop new training, tactics, weapons and
equipment. As a result, every Marine Corps battalion will receive a two-week
basic urban-skills training (BUST) course. BUST, once limited to a small number
of Marines, focuses on urban combat skills, including patrolling techniques,
clearing rooms, dealing with IEDs, handling detainees, collecting intelligence,
conducting sniper operations, and working with the local population.

Whats going on gunner. I looked it up on the internet and read what it was about....I also looked up the Marine Corps on the internet and it is nothing like the commercials or the website says (It is much better). So I was wanting to know if it was actually good training from anyone who has been to it
