A TACLET South Green Team member performs an elevated water entry while wearing all his law enforcement equipment by stepping off the 10-foot diving board. Once in the water, the member has to successfully deploy his flotation devices to complete Water Survival Training. Green Team is the initial indoctrination for new members assigned to TACLET South. The 19-days of training increases the member’s physical conditioning and required mission qualifications to deploy on counter narcotics and anti-piracy missions. U.S. Coast Guard photo by Lt.
