fight-through drill
 n.— «“The Marines need to know what it feels like when Oleoresin Capsicum is sprayed on them before they actually go out and deploy it on someone else,” said Sgt. Owen Wood, the lead instructor for the course.…“They are called fight-through drills, but we like to refer to them as confidence drills,” explained Wood. “They are designed to build confidence in the Marines and let them know that they can still perform their duty even after getting sprayed.”» —“Marine riot police get a taste of their own medicine” by Ezekiel R.
