Paratroopers and family members of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team enjoyed an evening of fun, fellowship, food and scares at the Panther Brigade Trunk or Treat held Monday, October 29th in the brigade’s area on Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Numerous civilian and military vehicles were set up and in costume to provide trunk-or-treat stations to children while members of the brigade organized and ran a costume contest.
Other events during Trunk or Treat included an obstacle course, a haunted aid station and event a potluck where families could bring a dish and dine on a variety of foods.
Furry friends also made an appearance last night, giving children a treat of different sorts as they had the opportunity to encounter a very patient llama and alpaca.
Panther Paratroopers, Families, and Friends,
Contributions of Hispanic Americans continue to keep the Panther Brigade Ready, Competent, and Lethal as we train for the crucible of ground combat.
As our Nation celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th, leaders at all levels across the 3rd Brigade Combat Team understand the strength inherent within an all-inclusive, diverse force of Paratroopers.
Hispanic Americans serve in vital roles throughout our formation as Paratroopers, noncommissioned officers, and officers. They are experts at the art and science of preparing the Brigade to jump, fight, and win on any drop zone in the world.
The Panther Brigade draws strength and proficiency from its diversity. Command Sgt. Maj. Teakell and I are honored to serve alongside all of you. Be Ready. Be Competent. Be Lethal and see you on the drop zone.
COL Art Sellers – 3rd Brigade Commander Command Sgt. Maj. Reese Teakell – 3rd Brigade Command Sergeant Major
Ready, Competent, Lethal! H-Minus!
