    Army Reserve Staff Sgt. Brett Hyde of the 74th Engineer Dive Detachment, 92nd Engineer Battalion, 20th Engineer Brigade, readies his boat for his dive supervisor qualification test on July 21, 2019 at Ft. Hood, Texas. “This a 15 passenger boat, and without the motor it weighs about 250 pounds,” said Hyde. “It can get tight in here with all the guys and our equipment, and open water is usually much choppier... but this water is easy to work in.” The 74th is at Ft. Hood to support Exercise Hood Strike - an operation that will combine engineer units from all three Army components, as well as the Marine Corps. The objective of the exercise, according to the 420th Engineer Brigade, is to structure a pontoon bridge across a selected river. This will allow mission-relevant vehicles, personnel, and equipment to maneuver over. Concurrently, the 420th will employ counter-IED tactics and sling-load operations during the training. Exercise Hood Strike will enhance the unit interoperability, lethality, and readiness of all U.S. Army components. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Sgt. Dakota Price)
