Maj. Peter Grossenbach, C-17 Globemaster III pilot with the 728th Airlift Squadron, plans the first leg of the orienteering competition during the Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers, or CIOR, military competition in Shumen, Bulgaria, last month. After trying out and qualifying for Team USA Military, Grossenbach went on to represent the U.S. as part of an international team and won third place in the novice category. The pentathlon consists of: pistol shooting, rifle shooting, 500-meter land obstacle course, 50-meter water obstacle course, and up to a 15-kilometer orienteering, or land-navigation, event that also encompasses combat first aid. According to the CIOR Web site, the competition focuses on military skills that truly challenge the leadership and physical robustness of reservists. (Courtesy photo)
