Company builds confidence, trust in cycle’s first week

Infantry Soldiers in Day 7 of one station unit training took on Sand Hill’s Eagle Tower for the first time Friday. The members of F Company, 1st Battalion, 50th Infantry Regiment, took turns climbing and descending the structure, which features “A-frame” steps, wooden ladders and platforms, roped bridges, a cargo net and 52-foot rappel wall. Unit leaders said the obstacle builds teamwork, motivation and confidence for the “Red Phase” of training — which covers the first three weeks — and the remainder of the cycle.
