While in the field for Mountain Peak, we had the opportunity to promote two Troopers to the rank of Sergeant! Sergeant is the first rank in the Noncommissioned Officer Corps, and reaching this rank is a major milestone in a Soldier’s career. 1SG Ganley kicked off the promotion ceremony with the NCO Creed, underlining the importance of this event. SGT Fuentes and SGT Lee worked hard for this achievement, and we look forward to their further achievements in this role of greater responsibility!

MOUNTAIN PEAK!

The Troop recently completed Mountain Peak, the Brigade’s culminating field training exercise prior to heading to the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana. During this exercise, the Troop got after a variety of reconnaissance and security tasks, and we had the opportunity to train alongside partners from Beast Company, 41st Engineer Battalion, 2nd Battalion 87th Infantry Regiment, and Dark Knights, 41st BEB, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. Mountain Peak was a challenging exercise, and our lessons learned made us a stronger team!
