Members of the company shared an Easter meal together after many of them had gone head-to-head in the weekend's training activities, which tested their combat skills in water with a timed 50-meter swim relay, a six-mile rucksack march, a nine-line Medevac request test and a milelong squad run followed by a stress shoot. The stress shoot tested the soldiers' abilities to hit targets after running a mile up and down the hills of Northeast Georgia.
