0600 a.m., sharp call : Tagwache !

Everyone's up in a second, some try to procrastinate.
15 min later, the last sleepers are thrown out of their beds.
Morning toilet, fetching breakfast by the corporals of day, 07.30 we are ready.

Standing in formation, the captain appears. He has returned from his daily 1 hour jog in the woods of the Blue quarry, the Emperors quarry, where granite was broken for the famous Vienna Ringstrasse in Imperial Austria.

When he appears, the company is quiet. No-nonsense expression, a man of steel, he won't demand more than he can deliver himself. Problem - it is a lot.

No one i have ever seen with more a will of steel, a massive amount of stamina.

One shout, plain and clear, comes out from 140 recruits : "Good morning, Herr Hauptmann !"

When the jog begins, we all sigh. The more we pant, the more he gets agile. Never ending strength, a bear, who is a real soldier.

After 1 hour, we are near exhaustion, the daily astronautic exercises start.
12 x 12 standard exercises. Close to exhaustion we make it through this morning.

With every day passing, our stamina gets stronger, our bodies harder.
Each muscle hurting, we have been turned into physical powerhouses.

Trained by Walter Lukesch, a statement that carries weight in our Army's chronicles.
