Marines compete, build camaraderie during battalion biathlon

Lance Cpl. Brandon Fawkes, a maintenance management specialist serving with Headquarters and Service Company, 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, runs the final mile of a biathlon during a battalion-wide competition here, Feb. 26, 2013. Fawkes, a 23 year-old native of Woodstock, Ill., said this biathlon is similar to the Spartan races he competed in, but the weight of his gear made this biathlon harder.
