Expert Infantryman's badge ceremony held

FORT STEWART (WTOC) - 3rd Infantry Division soldiers competed at Fort Stewart on Thursday, each determined to earn the coveted Expert Infantryman's badge.

The competition was held at Camp Oliver and the award ceremony was held following the rigorous tactical and physical tasks.

"Battle buddies, my guys on my left and right, I do it for them," Stephen Anderson said. "I don't do it for myself. I do it for my N.C.O.S that are under me and officers ahead of me."

Historically, only five percent of competitors earn the badge.
