The Catamounts just completed two weeks of Platoon training, patrolling the toughest terrain that Fort Drum has to offer, battling a near-peer opposing force, and bringing all the combat power of the light infantry to bear. All of the Battalion's rifle platoons, weapons platoons, and the distro platoon pushed themselves to the limit, learning many valuable lessons along the way. No matter how tough it got, the Catamounts never lost focus on the Climb to Glory! 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division 10th Mountain Division
