WOC Ruck
Christopher Dayton, a U.S. Army Reserve staff sergeant and warrant officer candidate from the 516th Sustainment Brigade, leads the front of a 10-kilometer ruck march along fellow U.S. Army Reserve and U.S. Army National Guard Soldiers as part of a graduation requirement for their candidate school at the Regional Training Institute at Fort Pickett, Virginia, Jan. 25, 2020. The school at Fort Pickett is one of 26 locations around the country run by the National Guard that allow U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers to attend the warrant officer candidate training. With the benefit of these locations, Soldiers now have the option to attend Warrant Officer Candidate School without having a 10-month wait for the school run by the active component at Fort Rucker, Alabama. This total force partnership between the Army Reserve and National Guard allows for more professional development opportunities across the U.S. Army. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Master Sgt.
