DAEGU GARRISON — With a goal of remaining proficient in their mission requirements, the 32nd KSC Company, Camp Henry, recently held its annual training exercise, with more than 100 participants suited up and ready to take on the challenge. The two-day training activity covered a variety of military-type topics. From first aid, NBC defense, weapons familiarization, and map reading, members approached the training stations to receive a short briefing and instructions before moving forward for hands on training and testing.

In advance of the two-day exercise KSC held 40 hours of mandatory refresher training, and the Army Warrior Training (AWT) Proficiency Test. According to Yun, Song Hwan, Commander, 32nd KSC Company, the training is taken quite seriously. He said, “The testing is very important in helping us achieve our mission. This testing evaluates all company employees’ abilities on the 17 combat critical AWT tasks, identifies any weakness or shortcoming based on how they performed in the past 12 months, and determines what training would be best for the next fiscal year.”

AWT evaluators and testers came from Camps Henry, Carroll, Walker, and the Yongchon areas. Present to observe the conduct of the training were Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Diggs, USAG Daegu, and Capt. Bobby Jeffords, Jr., Company Cdr., HHC, USAG Daegu.
