          I did not have three friends in the army at all (real health problems), but thanks to the upbringing of my fathers, they volunteered to join the militia to defend the Russians, and went through the Shirokino meat grinder and more. ATGM, intelligence, DRG. Unfortunately, one of them returned in zinc. The bottom line is that not even 99% depends on you, but all 100, bring up a warrior and he will be the best without the airborne forces! Like "Farik", "Brown" and of course "Zema", his kingdom is heaven.

        From the memoirs of Vasily Bryukhov (tank ace):

        After the victory near Stalingrad, an order was received to create agitation brigades for skiers and go through the nearby villages, to carry out explanatory work. General Serkov instructed the formation of an agitation brigade to lieutenant Fedorov (head of the physical training school) and the head of the political department. We were informed that the Kurgan - Sverdlovsk ski run is being prepared. Its participants will be provided with enhanced nutrition. This phrase “enhanced nutrition” acted magically. Everyone suddenly became skiers and avid campers, and when the selection began, a crowd of people gathered in front of the office. In turn, I went in. My appearance was miserable: 163 centimeters tall, four feet larger on my feet, a hat two sizes bigger on my head, specially chosen by me to cover my frostbitten ears. The lieutenant examined me pityingly:
        - Listen, son, you're a child! Well, what kind of skier are you?
        - I was the champion of the area. “I have 1st ski rank,” I said pleadingly.
        “Which one of you is a champion ?!”
        “I have a testimony!” - I showed my ski ticket, issued to the participants of the competition.
        - Okay. - The lieutenant skeptically looked at a piece of paper and, apparently, did not believe. - Come tomorrow. Let's see which of you is a skier.
        So I was among the 20 candidates, among whom he had to choose 10 people. He decided to select them without further ado: in a village, about ten kilometers from the school, a friend lived with him, so the route was laid through her house. Let's go. The group immediately stretched out, but I kept holding on to it. I already have no strength, but I think: “I’ll drop, but I will not give up, I will last” - after all, the reward was enhanced nutrition. We went to the house together. Only then did he realize that there was nobody else besides me. He led me to his Marfush: “You, let’s sit here, and I’ll go to collect cadets. If I'm not there, come back "......

        These were super marathons - so as not to die of hunger ...

    Dumb to serve in Kamyshin? Have you tried? 56 guards Odshbr is one of the most combat formations of the RF Armed Forces; the brigade personnel took part in all armed conflicts, starting from Afghanistan and ending with Syria. To watch the "soldier's ski" you had to order the appropriate weather from the Lord God. The duties of the commanders do not provide for a weather order. Tasks are performed in any conditions. Fighters of the brigade from Kamyshin to Volgograd part of the way moved with skis on their shoulders. On the day, participants in the march throw manage to walk about 50 kilometers. The movement is on the steppe, away from settlements.

    He served in the 56 emergency brigade in TurkVO, 1990-1992. We didn’t need skis there. The salt flats around Murghab are white but that’s all. When the brigade was transferred to Zelenchukskaya st., It was possible to ski there in Arkhyz. I even remained a contractor 1993 ., I liked the mountains of the Caucasus. And then I didn’t want to go to the Volgograd region, I quit, otherwise I would go for a drive in the mountains of Chechnya a year later.
