Over the course of this past week we held our Instructor of the Quarter competition. Each competitor had to complete six different events that not only displayed their physical fitness but their ability to teach and train our future Warriors as well. Each competitor had to take the ACFT, get evaluated on giving Program of Instruction (POI), a 6 mile ruck, a basic instructor knowledge exam, and last but not least attend a board. The competition was so close that the difference between first and second place was by a four point margin 😮😮😮. Congratulations to SSG Gilchrist, Jimmie of the Water Training Division for winning and congratulations to SSG Martin, Maureen for getting runner up. 👏👏👏

Petroleum and Water Department

Welcome to the Petroleum and Water Department. This Department is responsible for instructing all advanced individual training for soldiers and marines in the fields of bulk fuels, petroleum laboratory and water treatment and distribution. We also train officers, reservist and national guard from all services. When the service member can't come to us, we also provide mobile training teams to units at home station or deployed in the field.

Stewart-Roye Hall is named for two distinguished NCOs; one a Marine and the other a soldier. The name is appropriate as it reflects the partnership the Marine Corps and the Army have in their training of petroleum supply specialists/bulk fuel handlers. This is the only building on Fort Lee named for a marine, again reflecting this partnership. This building is the centerpiece of the petroleum and water complex that includes two major field petroleum areas, two base petroleum laboratories, a mobile and an airmobile petroleum laboratory, four water sites and 28 classrooms.

More than 125 instructors teach in our facilities. Instructors include from the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines; officers; civilians; noncommissioned officers; soldiers, and Marines. Our instructors are highly dedicated and among the most technically competent in the military today.
