On 9 April 2017, Charlie Company 2/413th Regiment, 2nd BDE, 95th Division, Fort Shafter Flats Hawaii, displayed their professionalism and knowledge while conducting an Army Physical Fitness Test for the only infantry battalion in the United States Army Reserve, the 100th Infantry Battalion. Three Charlie Company drill sergeants and two drill sergeant candidates administered an APFT by regulation to 40 Soldiers. The Infantry unit’s leadership contacted the Drill Sergeant unit to emphasis Army standards and to utilize the expertise of a fellow reserve unit.
Sgt Hensley 740th Company, 100th Infantry Battalion noted the following about the Charlie Company drill sergeants, “We appreciate the drill sergeant unit’s time and applaud them for holding each individual to the correct standards.”
The drill sergeants took the time to explain each event and even had a question and answer session prior to scoring. At the conclusion of a successful APFT, the drill sergeants instructed individuals how to take height and weight measurements correctly.
The soldiers of 740th Company, 100th Infantry Battalion were grateful for the instruction and regimented to-standard APFT. The 100th Infantry Battalion leadership has requested the use of Charlie Company for future APFTs as well as instructional Physical Readiness Training (PRT) events.
