Local elementary school students participate in unit Army day

A students from Marley Elementary School, located in Glen Burnie, Md., receives instructions from Master Sgt. Kenneth Carlson, a member of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Group, prior to rappelling down a 15 foot wall during the AWG's Army day with the school, June 5, at Fort Meade, Md. Events chosen for the Army day were picked because they not only help build confidence in the students, but also only required organic and home station assets. Twenty-three boys who are members of the elementary school's program, Marley Boys, participated in the event. The events also included a mock abbreviated physical fitness test, drill and ceremony activities, hands on with Army equipment and vehicle displays, a trip to the Fort Meade Museum and concluded with a certificate ceremony. The Army day provide a day for the students to build confidence in themselves, learn about the Army and demonstrate the many options that exists for their futures. (U.S. Army Photo by Lt. Col.
