PT with the 18th FA Brigade CSM

On the 4th of April CSM Phelps from the 18th Field Artillery Brigade invited Platoon Sergeants and above to participate in a morning of physical training or PT. At 0600 enlisted personnel on Camp Redleg met for a competition of which contained a vigorous five minute session of exercise with one minute to complete a task and transfer to the next event. Each group consisted of five soldiers, one barbell with two 45 pound plates, and one 15-25 pound medicine ball. Throughout this workout, nothing was able to touch the ground. However, there was a special twist! Any group members that were currently sporting a mustache had to carry an extra ten pounds on behalf of their team.
The grouping combined senior leaders from each of our batteries working here, to include
our security team as well as brigade. The purpose of these groups were to promote cohesion between our batteries and companies. These partnerships were challenged by events such as push-up sand bag drags, dead lift, pull-up, bench press, box jumps, and dips. The team with the highest number of repetitions claimed the title. The number one team included SFC Gregorek, SFC Medina(Bravo 1-121), SFC TenCate(108th FSC), SFC Wenzel(108th FSC), and SFC Patel (A 104th Engineer).

'In country only a week before we lost Stephen Castner. Charlie Company 1-121st FA retrained to do convoy security based in Kuwait leading all convoys into Iraq. We were the the only unit to travel the entire country of Iraq on our es**rt missions. I, Sgt. Philip Betzhold ran a squad of 9 of over 100,000 miles throughout Iraq. This barrier was the least we could do in rememberence of who we lost and what we did.'
