Fort Jackson's Commanding General, Major General John P. "Pete" Johnson, cordially invites you to observe the Army's newest Soldiers as they negotiate the Night Infiltration Course on January 16th.
The Night Infiltration Course (NIC) is one of the most memorable training events experienced by Soldiers in Basic Combat Training. Soldiers charge out of a trench and advance towards an objective, experiencing live machine gun fire over their heads, while explosions and aerial flares enhance the training experience.
