NEW ARMY PT TEST: "The six-event readiness assessment, called the Army Combat Fitness Test, is intended to replace the current three-event Army Physical Fitness Test, which has been around since 1980.

'The Army Combat Fitness Test will ignite a generational, cultural change in Army fitness and become a cornerstone of individual Soldier combat readiness...It will reduce musculoskeletal injuries and actually save, in the long run, the Army a heck of a lot of money.'"

The 31st Civil Support Team, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) supports local and state authorities at domestic potential chemical incident sites by identifying agents and advising on response measures, and assisting with requests for additional military support.

The CST is composed of 22 people from both the Army and Air National Guard, with a variety of specialties within the #DelawareNationalGuard. (Delaware National Guard photo by Bernie Kale)
