Lead in: the upcoming 22nd annual Bataan memorial death march will honor world war two service members. P-f-c Amanda Russell witnessed the endurance of Guantanamo bay soldiers battling for a place at white sands missile range in march.
Script: sweat burned eyes, cramping muscles, and blistered feet are things most wouldn’t volunteer for. But for the 525th m-p battalion, this past weekend and the next are just the ‘tryouts’ for the actual competition. Pfc Brandon Cummings placed third in Sunday’s 15 mile march.
Soundbite: “windmill hill, and the last four miles of the ruck, I just wanted to quit. Didn’t think i could do it… I’d rather be in a nightmare with Freddy Krueger honestly. It was pretty bad”
Script: after two weekends of tryouts, the top six scores will compete in New Mexico in march.
Tagout: reporting from GTMO, I’m army private first class Amanda Russell, J-T-F-G-P-A-O.
