After the teams memorized the diagram they ran another quarter mile down the trail where they reconstructed it putting the characters in the correct order. The event included a variety of physical and mental tests that helped build camaraderie and remember those who lost their lives during the attacks on Pearl Harbor. The 82nd ERQS provides search and rescue throughout the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa area of responsibility. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Chad Thompson)
