The German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge is a decoration of the Bundeswehr, the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Germany. The decoration can be awarded to all German or Allied soldiers. Any rank may be awarded and wear the badge. In the United States Military, the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge is one of the few approved foreign awards, and it is one of the most sought after awards to achieve. To be awarded this badge, soldiers must complete a Basic Fitness Test, 100m swim, first aid test, NBC MOPP test, pistol qualification, and a 12km foot march. Congratulations to Cadets McCaughan, Mazel, Fromm, L. Nmashie, D. White, Conway and Cardenas!

Inclement weather doesn’t stop the patriot battalion from being able to conduct their training. With the help of the MSIVs that pivoted rapidly to adjust, virtual lab was a success.

11/25/2020

After a long and challenging semester, Patriot Battalion has concluded its activities for Fall 2020. No one knew how the semester would play out because of the unpredictable circumstances that could arise. Regardless, Patriot Battalion cadets proved to have tremendous potential as future Army Second Lieutenants because of their adaptability, determination, and motivation to show excellence no matter the situation. To award their efforts, we recognized 6 Cadets for our Summer 2020 100 Mile Ruck Challenge, 7 cadets for their high volunteering hours, 15 newly Contracted Cadets, and the new Cadet of the Year, Cadet Figueroa-Badel, and Cadet of the semester, Cadet Coffey. We also had this ceremony to mark the new change of battalion command for the Spring 2020 semester. Former Battalion Commander Cadet Osinaga has handed off the Patriot battalion flag to our new commander, Cadet Chung. Cadet Osinaga has done a phenomenal job leading and representing us in face of challenging times, and we wish all the best for Cadet Chung in the upcoming semester.

Congratulations to all the cadets of Patriot Battalion for a great semester! Patriots Lead the Way!

For the few and the proud, from the many and the thankful, words cannot adequately express our profound gratitude for your service and dedication to our freedoms. Patriot Battalion wants to take a moment to thank all the men and women who have served our country, and to those who still do. There are few people willing to take on the sacrifice for the protection of our values, our way of life, our Constitution, and our citizens. If you see or know or a veteran, please take a moment to thank them and show your appreciation for their service to this nation.

After a weekend of determination and hard work, Patriot Battalion has concluded the Fall FTX. Not letting the rain stop them, MSI’s and MSII’s conducted day and night land navigation, Expert Infantry Badge tasks, and squad training exercises. MSIII’s trained on platoon level tactics in preparation for next semester’s FTX and advanced camp next summer. We want to recognize everyone from MSI’s to Cadre for the hard work and dedication shown in planning the FTX and conducting it. We are thankful to have phenomenal group of people who are extremely driven to succeed. Go Patriots!

Patriot Battalion wants to give the Warsocki brothers a big shoutout on the phenomenal terrain model they made. They went out of their own way to not only create an item that we used to help brief our Fall FTX, but for something future cadets can use. This sets a legacy of what it means to go above and beyond the standard and how everyone must strive to contribute to the betterment of an organization. Patriot Battalion thanks you both, Cadets Timothy and Benjamin Warsocki, keep leading the way!

For last week’s lab, Patriot Battalion focused on the Ambush Tactic. MSI’s and MSII’s learned squad ambush, while MSIII’s learned platoon ambush! These were led by our Patriot Battalion Cadre, in order to ensure they run through the motions correctly and to give them practice before they are evaluated. The new knowledge they have will assist them at our FTX, Advanced Camp, and as future 2nd Lieutenants!

Today for Pet of the Week, we introduce you to Cadet Honig’s Dog, Jane!

She’s half S**z Tsu and half Bichon. She loves going on walks, loves running around the house, watching tv, and riding in cars! Jane is extremely active despite her old age, because she understands the importance of exercise no matter how old or young you are! I wonder what her ACFT score would be?

Anyways, she also loves going on big adventures and is never afraid to get dirty. Sounds like she would have a fun time at our upcoming Field Training Exercise!

Instead of yelling bang bang, cadets finally got to go pew pew. This weekend, Patriot Battalion, along with Hoya and Bison Battalion, conducted a range qualification in order to meet the requirements of OAL. Along with the range, cadets learned how to call for fire, perform tactical casualty care, and took a written land-nav test. Our task force continues to exceed expectations, and meet the challenges this year as presented. Great job everyone.

This past weekend, Patriot Battalion, along with Hoya Battalion and Bison Battalion, participated at Operation Agile Leader in order to master their tactical knowledge and develop their core leadership capabilities. While the hills were high and the amount of sleep was low, all cadets came out of the woods Sunday afternoon with a sense of proficiency and confidence in their abilities to lead Soldiers as future 2nd Lieutenants.

19 years ago, the United States of America experienced an attack that shocked the world. Terrorists hijacked four passenger airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a rural field in Pennsylvania. 2,996 people died as a result of the attacks, which includes the death of 343 fireman and 60 police officers. The attacks changed the way of life in many ways but it never changed the patriotism we as Americans have towards this country. Each year, it is important to honor those who serve to protect our nation domestically, and abroad. We must never forget the sacrifice they made and continue to make each and every day.

It is not over yet! With just under a week until submissions are due, we want to highlight our cadets who have stepped off for the challenge of rucking 100 miles. These cadets have demonstrated grit, motivation, and elite performance- traits we hope to instill in all our leaders as they develop into future 2LTs. During an uncertain time when factors were out of their control, these cadets had the personal motivation to prepare themselves for the upcoming semester. We look forward to seeing these cadets continue to serve as leaders among their peers and to the safe return for our program next week. Patriots lead the way.
