2LT Kennedy Edwards, field artillery officer in 2nd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division help the All-Army Basketball team at the Armed Forces Championship to take home the Silver.
"It was a great experience, just to be able to set aside military duties for a month... getting to know different players from different backgrounds," Edwards said of the experience. "We physically challenged ourselves every single day and that built a lot of mental toughness for us to prepare for the tournament."
"He was a great asset to the team," said All-Army head coach Capt. Carl Little. "Very calm and collective. Can definitely play on this stage. We look forward to having him again. He was a great addition to the program."
