March Best Squad

Paratroopers from across the brigade competed Tuesday, March 19th in the monthly Best Squad Competition.

This month’s competition required participants complete a demanding 8-mile course wearing their body armor and helmet and carrying their assigned weapon.

The course took participants to the very top of Fort Bragg’s Coolyconch Mountain and back with stations along the way testing their medical knowledge, communication skills and mental agility.
