Sunrise

The sun rises behind "spur holders," from 1st Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, while they wait for candidates during the squadron's annual spur ride, Nov. 1, 2012. The spur ride, a 36-hour event, pushed soldiers to their physical and mental limitations by testing their ability to operate as part of a team under high levels of stress and fatigue under both day and night conditions.
