    CAMP ARIFJAN, Kuwait – Army Spc. Darth Wagner, a human resources specialist with U.S. Army Central, begins the 11 X 10-meter sprint by lying in the prone position while Chief Warrant Office 2 Craig Hires, 108th Sustainment Brigade, Task Force Lincoln, holds a mat in place as Staff Sgt. Alan Graham, 34th Red Bull Infantry Division, starts the time during the basic fitness test event of the German Armed Forces Badge (GAFB) for Military Proficiency on April 10, 2019, at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. During this part of the test, participants lie in the prone position with arms beside them. Then, they lift their body, sprint 10 meters to a cone and return to their starting position and clap their hands behind their back. Male participants earn gold for finishing in 36 to 42 seconds, silver for 43 to 48 seconds and bronze for 49 to 60 seconds. Females earn gold for 36 to 45 seconds, silver for 46 to 50 seconds and bronze for 51 to 60 seconds. U.S. Army Central hosts events such as the GAFB to enhance service member’s personal abilities to stay combat ready which improves overall capabilities.
