Today the Packhorse Battalion competed for the Commander's Cup in the Packhorse Challenge Competition.

The ESB focused competition started at the obstacle course. After completing the obstacle course, Soldiers continued rucking to the next four lanes, picking up new supplies at each lane. These lanes included a commo task, PT challenge, weapons assembly and functions check, and treatment and EVAC of a casualty.

The Packhorse Challenge proved to be both challenging and fun - creating trust between battle buddies and increasing esprit de corps among teams.

This past week the Packhorse Battalion and all of the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, took part in the first of many Fort Carson "Soldier First" initiatives, Operation Mountain Post Resolve. In an enduring effort to build a team of teams, the Packhorse Battalion through group discussion, and team building events promoted and encouraged concepts of accountability of each other, and that people are our greatest asset. Through forum and group discussion opportunities The Battalion promoted open dialog to address a broad spectrum of topics from finance and suicide awareness, to racial diversity within our formation. The Battalion will continue Soldier First efforts to facilitate an environment that encourages team camaraderie and unity.

Today the Packhorse Battalion underwent Foundational Readiness Training. This training, held in small group discussions, encompassed topics such as racial diversity, mental health, and financial preparedness, among other topics. The purpose of this training is to provide information, as well as various view points, on topics that are often difficult to discuss.

Foundational Readiness Training places an emphasis on the Soldiers’ and Families’ well being - an integral part to our mission and essential for the unity of the Packhorse Battalion.

In addition to our training today, we were able to celebrate the promotion of SSG Sablan, Trans platoon, Alpha Company. Congratulations SSG Sablan!

Following the intense PT session, 4BSB held a 1SG appointment ceremony for 1SG Tutt and 1SG Illert. We are proud and excited to see how these senior NCOs help shape the BSB!

Finally, the Packhorse Reception PLT got after training with an extensive course on counseling, a behavioral health brief, and preliminary marksmanship instruction.

One of the biggest challenges we will face at the National Training Center/Fort Irwin is sustaining the fight, but the 4th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st SBCT, 4th ID and our Forward Support Companies have that covered.

Here's a #throwback to Ray Flash when our sustainers sharpened their skills during convoy training.

*UPDATE* scheduled fly by is delayed by about 30 minutes

The Air Force Thunderbirds will be flying over today around 1:50 as a salute to all the COVID19 frontline responders in Colorado!

Tomorrow’s Colorado flyover serves as a salute to the healthcare workers, first responders and other essential personnel on the front line against COVID-19 in the Centennial State.

Our flight path starts at 12:50 in Greeley and winds south to Pueblo over what is estimated to be a one-hour flyover.

Make sure to tag us in your posts and stories! We’ll be sharing them all day!

Raider Brigade Physical Therapy

Packhorse Battalion, take a look at the Raider Brigades Physical Therapy page! Good information and techniques to practice.

Raiders, today we’re focusing on balance, as part of our “build your foundation” series. Facebook is a little bit clunky, so I can’t add all the videos and pictures to one post. The video attached the this post shows a way to train and test balance progressions.

Double leg, tandem stance, single leg, in that order. Tested for 30 seconds x 4 conditions: eyes open on a hard surface, eyes closed on a hard surface, eyes open on a soft surface, and finally eyes closed on a soft surface. If you can’t hit those benchmarks, practice until you can! The next video shows a more dynamic balance assessment called the Y-Balance Test.
