Soldiers from the 528th Sustainment Brigade enjoyed a little friendly competition June 1, as the brigade’s inaugural Sentinel Challenge took place.
The challenge included a ruck march, bike and swimming competition and ended with a cookout.
Ten teams competed in the competition with top honors going to Team PV6 with a final time of 3:25.1.
Top individual honors went to Staff Sgt. Jason Worthington for best ruck time (seven miles) of 1:17.40; Sgt. Derrick Kozlowski for best run time (four miles) of 25:40; Maj. Howell Kelly with best swim time (one-thousand meters) of 20:00.20; and Capt. Russell Fields with best bike time (15 miles) of 1:06.50.
“The intent of the event was a team building project,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Bobby Hagy, 528th Sustainment Bde. command sergeant major. “Everyone has something they do well … It’s what you bring to the team that counts.”
Forty soldiers made up a total of 10 teams for the event, which created a fun moral-building opportunity for the brigade. Maj. Caprissa Brown-Slade, the brigades’ executive officer summed up the event with the attributes of military leadership.
“This was a Be – Know – Do event… be all you can be; know we are the best – and do it with style…which is what we did,” she said.
