From left, Maj. Mike Masuda, C-17 pilot with the 313th Airlift Squadron, zeroes his pistol with Team USA Military teammate Col. Scott Banning during the annual international military pentathlon competition in Shumen, Bulgaria, last month. After winning the gold medal last year in the novice category, Masuda rejoined his team for another bout in the Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers, or CIOR, military competition. 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)
