Panthers Compete for May Best Squad

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.
