Infantrymen from across the 3rd Brigade Combat Team spent early May training to prepare themselves to earn the Expert Infantryman Badge on Fort Bragg.
Highly valued by Infantrymen, earning the EIB is a testament to the Paratrooper’s technical skill, tactical knowledge and physical endurance.
Testing for the EIB occurred the second week of May on Fort Bragg, requiring candidates to succeed in a grueling evaluation culminating in a 12-mile timed ruckmarch.
