Got Gold?

I do!
Today I finished the last event of the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge. I completed the requirements tonight, the final 100m dash. 13.8 seconds when the requirement was 14. Now I have a very cool achievement that I can proudly wear on my uniform!
The final Tally:
  • 25K Ruck March
  • 200m swim in 5 minutes
  • 3000m Run in 13:28
  • Shooting 6/6 with a 9mm handgun
  • Passing a medic test
  • Jumping 5 feet, 4 inches in the high jump
  • Throwing a shot put 29 feet
  • and of course the 100m dash in 13.8s
I am very proud of this! This is something that I couldn't have done a couple of years ago and now I have some very tangible rewards. I will have to post a picture of it on the uniform, it looks huge.

Off to the field, going dark until Thursday.
