FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. – Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 193rd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, participated in their first Commander’s Challenge event this morning.
Soldiers and noncommissioned officers competed for the best time against Capt. John Tribe, commander, HHC, 4th MEB. The commander promised anyone beating his recorded time of 1:20 would be granted a four-day pass.
The challenge was held during regular physical fitness training time and included pull ups, body dips, lifting a weighted duffel bag five times then running approximately 50 yards, a dean man’s drag, and finally push-ups.
The challenge built on physical endurance as well as camaraderie, which was evident in the clarity of the company exploding their motto, ‘No fear, No doubt,’ upon being called to the position of attention at the end of the event.
Overall, the entire company enjoyed themselves and benefited from being physically challenged. There were some great attempts among the competitors but no one was able to beat the commander’s time.
