THIS IS MY LIFE -

 
HI! I’m Raffaele. I enlisted in the Army in 2007 and soon after I became a “military rescuer”. My duty is to cope with emergency cases, applying all the range of "lifesaving measures". A military rescuer is first of all a soldier and he is not belonging to the medical component. He must be able to perform his duties only in case of extreme urgency and exclusively during military operations, to minimize risks in case of accidents/events involving his unit.
I love my job and the working environment; facilities and equipment are great.
-       Sport activity and fitness play a big role in keeping a soldier in good shape for his duty inthe Army. To help promote teamwork and keep fit as well, in my spare time  I’m also a Crossfit Instructor.
CrossFit is an extemely demanding activity. The training program is not particularly specialized but helps each trainees to get stronger and to enhance is stamina.
