We congratulate Sgt. Puckett of the 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment and Pfc. Viuhkola of 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment; they are the 3rd Brigade NCO and Paratrooper of the Quarter!
These paratroopers prevailed over their peers during a multi-day competition testing their tactical competency and grit during a physical fitness test, a live call-for-fire exercise and a board in front of the brigade’s senior NCO leadership.
Paratroopers proved their tactical prowess and combat acumen during a demanding field exercise conducted late February and early March on Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Paratroopers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division proved their ability to synchronize a multitude of lethal assets and Mission Command elements during the brigade’s Combined Arms Live Fire Exercise from February 18, 2019 to March 5, 2019.
