BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - The 3rd Infantry Division Resolute Support Sustainment Brigade held a Soldier and non-commissioned officer of the quarter board June 13 at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

The Soldiers competed in a physical fitness test, situational training exercise and a board comprised of senior noncommissioned officers within the RSSB.

Spc. Nicholas Smith, human resources specialist, Special Troops Battalion, and Spc. Kevin Moore, contracting officer’s representative, 304th Movement Control Team, both with the 3rdID RSSB, competed in the Soldier of the Quarter board. While both Soldiers gave their best, Moore was victorious that day.

Sgt. Caroline Robinson-Gray, senior information technician, 3rd ID RSSB, won the NCO of the Quarter board. To prepare for the board, Robinson-Gray said she has been studying and practicing in between accomplishing her primary mission in the sustainment automation support management office. 

“I spent numerous hours of my personal time studying regulations, warrior tasks and battle drills and working on my physical fitness,” she said. “It was challenging but well worth it in the long run.”

The STX lane was comprised of different combat-like exercises that the competitors were graded on. They had to react to simulated indirect fire, a gas attack, treat and transport a casualty and call up a nine-line medical evacuation request. In the board, the senior NCOs were firing off question after question on 25 different Army regulations. 

Moore and Robinson-Gray will go on to compete in the Soldier and NCO of the Year board later this year.
