Paratroopers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division participated in the brigade’s May Best Squad Competition on May 2, 2018.
The competition is a monthly contest to determine the top squad in the Panther brigade and often challenges the physical and mental fitness of the participants.
This month’s competition required paratroopers to ruckmarch over 6 miles on Fort Bragg, taking them up and down Coolyconch Mountain while testing their communication skills and memory.
Paratroopers assigned to Headquarters, Headquarters Company, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division wade through a river while conducting a ruck march.
The ruck march was part of the company’s assault command post physical training and helped the paratroopers train for future operations while building teamwork.
