The military commissariat probably couldn’t make provision of military people. In general, they took all the men there. Well, they made the following way: there was one military instructor, so we were asked to start a month before. So what were we taught in this course? Well, how to shoot, how to commando crawl, how to take to pieces machine gun or rifle and so on. So well, we didn’t study in a class, but in a troop unit. For example, I finished it, and I was a troop commander, but not a class host as it is said to be.
