Run, signal, run: Signal Corps Soldiers partake in 4-mile regimental run
Staff Sgt. Kristen Duus,
1st AD Public Affairs:
Nearly 500 signal Soldiers from Fort Bliss participated in a signal regimental run Friday.
Signal Soldiers, or as they’re known among themselves, “signalers,” provide the voice and data communications support to all commanders from the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss.
The Soldiers formed up on the 1st AD parade field on a cool Fort Bliss morning amid a drizzle and higher-than-normal humidity levels.
Command Sgt. Maj. Roberto Marshall, the 86th Expeditionary Signal Battalion command sergeant major, led the formation on the four-mile run around East Fort Bliss. Also leading the formation was the Signal Corps’ telltale orange guidon.
“The Soldiers’ morale was high as everybody was sounding off,” said Marshall. “We made some heads turn.”
The run was held in honor of the regiment’s birthday, which was June 21. Its intent was to build morale and camaraderie among all signalers of Team Bliss.
“I believe this will become a recurrent event to build esprit de corps among signalers from Team Bliss and maybe spread to other branches,” said Marshall.
