Los Angeles Air Force Base, Calif. -- The Space and Missile Systems Center's Security Forces Guardian Challenge 2010 team has trained rigorously during the past month to prepare for the competition May 16 to 19 at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The team includes 2nd Lt. Alea Nadeem, DoD Officers Steven Haymes and Yvette Perez, Tech. Sgts. Rochanapan Silpe and Leslee William, and Staff Sgt. Alex Andriyanov. Tech. Sgts. Peter Ada and Juan Felix unfortunately had to withdraw due to injuries.
The team's training took place at March Air Reserve Base and Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach , Calif., and focused on military operations on urban terrain, high-risk entry, combat markmanship, fitness run (3 miles) and station challenge.
The first three days of competition will take place at the Academy range and Jack's Valley for the marksmanship and tactics portions. On the final day, teams will compete on the obstacle course.
The winning security forces team will be announced at the award banquet May 21.
