Soldier Carry
From: FM 7-22 October 2012
Purpose: This exercise develops the Soldier's ability to carry a conscious or unconscious Soldier of comparable size (Figure 9-48).
Starting Position: Soldier “B” assumes the prone position, arms overhead. Soldier “A” straddles Soldier “B” and squats, reaching under Soldier “B’s” armpits. Soldier “A” stands lifting Soldier “B” to his knees. Soldier “A” continues to lift Soldier “B” to his feet, leaning him back slightly to lock the legs. Soldier “A” raises one of Soldier “B’s” arms overhead and walks under the arm to the front of Soldier “B,” oriented sideways to Soldier “B.” Soldier “A” bends his knees and leans forward, placing one arm through Soldier “B’s” legs. Soldier “A” leans Soldier “B” forward until he lies across Soldier “A’s” shoulders. Soldier “A” stands up, lifting Soldier “B” off the ground. Soldier “A,” using the hand of his arm that is between Soldier “B’s” legs, grasps the wrist of Soldier “B’s” arm that is hanging over Soldier “A’s” shoulder.
Movement: Soldier “A” moves 25-yards at quick time; then Soldier “B” dismounts; the Soldiers then change positions and return to the starting point.

Check Points:
  • Soldier “A” should squat low and grasp Soldier “B” under the arms to lift him from the prone position. Soldier “A” may clasp his hands in front of Soldier “B’s” chest to help him lift Soldier “B” to his feet.
  • Position Soldier “B” over the shoulder during the carry. Secure the position with one hand, grasping Soldier “B’s” forward arm.
Precautions: Keep back straight and use legs to lift Soldier to the carry position. All movement in the carry position is performed at a quick time;no running.
