Our very own FOX Sports Ohio Girl Sara experienced the trip first-hand. Upon her return, she blogged about the trip. Here is a excerpt:
"On the agenda to start the day was the Commanders Challenge over at Vilsek. It’s basically an obstacle course… a really hard obstacle course! It was cold outside, probably about 28 degrees and snowing… but nothing this OHIO girl couldn’t handle. We were all placed on teams, and I happened to be teamed with Tim Salmon and 7 other soldiers. The course spread out for approximately 3-4 miles. It consisted of pushing a vehicle, a half-mile run, flipping tires, another half-mile run with a log, 50 chin-ups collectively (out of our group of 11), another half-mile run, carrying/running with someone on a stretcher for a half-mile (luckily I was on the stretcher!), running with a gas mask on (by the way, this is really difficult!) and assembling rifles. My team was incredible."You can read her entire recap HERE.
While in Germany, Sara also got to sing the National Anthem at the base's Wiffle Ball game.
Upon returning, Sara has appeared on several radio shows and Chuck's Last Call to talk about the trip.
