ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, S.D. --

Approximately 12 members of the 28th Civil Engineer Squadron participated in a Leadership Reaction Course June 14, 2017 at the South Dakota National Guard’s Camp Rapid, Rapid City, S.D.

The LRC training is part of the annual Golden Coyote exercise and is designed to strengthen teamwork and build trust among participants. The course features multiple obstacles simulating real-world scenarios that can be seen on deployments.

“This course is designed to help build team cohesion and communication to effectively solve problems,” said U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Nathan Amaral, an LRC course instructor.

These obstacles not only help strengthen a unit, but also develops leadership qualities while allowing members to practice problem-solving techniques.

“This is actually my first time participating in this training,” said U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Dustin Oslund, an explosive ordinance disposal technician assigned to the 28th CES. “Seeing everyone come together with different ideas and working as a team to get through these courses is a great feeling.”
