KUWAIT – With temperatures in the high 40’s, the troops of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133’s Detail Bravo got together for a 2.5 mile Run to Remember sponsored by members of the Army Support Group – Kuwait Dec. 24.

The Run to Remember gave the detail a chance to honor their fallen brothers and sisters of the armed forces this holiday season. The group of runners, that included service members from the Army, Marine Corps and Navy, started the ceremony by introducing themselves. Following a blessing for the health and safety of the runners by the chaplain of the ASG-KU Resiliency Center, the runners took a moment of silence to honor the fallen before starting the motivational formation run.

Throughout the run, Detail Bravo maintained the group’s motivation by leading the cadences and setting the pace. The group ran two laps around the perimeter of the Life Support Area singing loud and proud.

Detail Bravo’s senior enlisted adviser Senior Chief Equipment Operator James Brock was at the front of the formation representing the Seabees and gave all an opportunity to reflect on the importance of the camaraderie they share.
