Stateside team prepares soldiers for mobilization

Soldiers from the 133rd Engineering Battalion and 1035th Survey and Design Team joined family and friends at the Portland Exposition Building Saturday, August 10 during a hero's send off for the troops. The soldiers leave soon for training in Mississippi before heading to Afghanistan where they will aid in the downsizing of bases there. Chief Warrant Officer 3 Kartika Wright is part of the team that helps prepare the soldiers for mobilization. "We work hard to make sure that the unit is the best trained and the best equipped they can possibly be before they leave for deployment," said the Readfield resident.

Michael Davis also with the 1035th as he climbs one of the various routes on the bouldering wall created by Marquis. Marquis has used his extensive climbing experience to teach soldiers basic mountaineering tasks while in Afghanistan to include classes on knot tying, repelling, and basic mountaineering skills. Marquis’s rock climbing wall is a product of the 1035th but has also provided hours of recreation for troops in the 133rd Eng. Bn. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.

Joshua McNinch, a surveyor with the 1035th Survey and Design Team, attached to the Portland, Maine-based 133rd Engineer Battalion, prepares an awards carrying case for an “end of tour” awards ceremony Feb. 20 at Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan. Once complete, the finished case will be painted with the battalion crest and will serve as the platform for the various awards to be handed out to soldiers. As Afghanistan enters the crux of its rainy season, projects like this one, keep soldiers busy when jobsites are too flooded to work on effectively. This “down-time” is welcomed by the soldiers as it allows them to show off individual talents and skills that are not part of their primary military occupational specialties. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
