Battle Buddy

2001, Goodfellow AFB, TX: It was another scorching, hot day, and Bobbie’s platoon had to do another group run while each Solider had to hold a one gallon water jug. One of the petite female Soldiers fell out of the run and was struggling to catch up. Another petite female Soldier looked back and noticed that her battle bud fell behind. Like a bat out of hell, she sprinted to the back of the formation, grabbed her battle bud’s jug of water and said, “C’mon…you got this.” Her battle bud was surprised, but she couldn’t help but to follow. This was only AIT school, but the Soldiers learned at an early stage, and for something as simple as a group run, not to leave their battle buddy behind.
