Sup Travellers?! There will come a time in your life when giving up is the easiest option on the table but if you want something bad enough you will soldier on and keep moving forward despite the pain. If you don't want to take this advice from me, take it from a real soldier who showed the world just how badly she wanted to earn her Expert Field Medical Badge. 

In the video above we see soldiers cheering on an Army captain in the final 50 feet of an intense 12-mile run.

CPT Sarah Cudd from Public Health Command, Fort Knox is only 1 of the 46 candidates who earned the EFMB at Fort Dix, NJ..27 April 2015. The video shows her last few seconds of the 12 Mile Foot March. 

The Foot March is the last event of the Expert Field Medical Badge (EFMB), and must be completed within 3 hours. If you want it, you have to go get it.. It took heart, guts, determination, falling down and getting up, and a little motivation from the crowd to get across the finish line but in the end --- IT WAS WORTH IT!!!.

The Washington Post explained “it was the last event required to earn the badge, a decoration awarded to those who pass a rigorous battery of tests for medical professionals in the Army. Less than 25 percent of those who attempt the required course typically pass and reported that Cudd’s command confirmed she earned the badge.”

Can we all just take a moment to give this brave soldier a hearty round of applause. I think she deserves it. She didn't quit and that, to me, is the best quality a soldier can ever have. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
