Former soldier returns to Fort Drum, remembers fallen friend

Yesterday Blackhawk Company had the honor of hosting CPT (ret.) Jake Murphy who served as Executive Officer in B Co during the 2011 deployment. CPT Murphy was wounded in action during the deployment but has continued to serve as an inspiration not just to Wounded Warriors but current and past service members alike.

A former Fort Drum solider who lost both legs in Afghanistan is back visiting post. He wants to make sure one of his fallen friends is being is being remembered.

Last week, the first "Battle of the Blackhawks" was conducted. It is a boxing match that has each Platoon put their best fighters into the ring to see who comes out victorious. 2nd Platoon swept all their fights and took 1st. It was an aggressive event and we look forward to the next one. Thank you to our friends at 10th Mountain Division Light Fighters School for helping to make this event possible. Blackhawks!

Today marked the finish of the Best Ranger Qualification Test for Rangers across the Division who wanted to represent 10th Mountain Division in next years (2017) Best Ranger Competition.

Today's events included Orienteering, Confidence Course, Water Confidence Test, and another Physical Fitness test.
This Qualification Test aims to simulate the 60 hour competition in both the knowledge that they will be tested on, the fatigue that will likely set in, and the physical obstacles that they will likely face.

The Best Ranger Competition will be the 34th anniversary and will feature the best, and most qualified Rangers in the United States Army. This competition has evolved and now focuses on testing to find the best two-man team from the entire United States Armed Forces.

1st (tie with 1st Brigade competitor) - LT Gunther Wong
2nd - LT Chase Pedron
3rd - LT Matt Yang
4th - LT Matt Coughlin

Catamounts also rounded out the 5th and 6th places, filled by former deployed TEAM LIGHTNING LTs Dan Sprouse and Dante Gaziano, respectively.

22 Catamounts were among the 25 participants who all finished.

Proud day to be a Commando, Catamount and Blackhawk - big congratulations and job well done to all competitors.

The Catamounts finished the first of many assessments today to earn a spot to represent the 10th Mountain Division in the 2017 Best Ranger Competition! Competitiors covered over 45 miles in a period of 36 hours and were required to complete a series of tactical tasks that tested their capabilities under stress.

Well done to 1LT Gunther Wong for tying for first place in today's assessment! 1LT Wong represented the 10th Mountain Division alongside CPT Mike Polanski during last year's Best Ranger Competition; we expect great things from him and the rest of the Catamounts in the assessments to come!
