Shoutout to our very own SGT Romero. On top of working endless hours at Sunburst, she manages to find time to do so many other things. In this case, she has earned her Bachelors in Communication Sciences and  Disorders. She represents our staff community so well! #iamsunburst

Infantry OSUT was the hardest 14 weeks of my life, it’s the transformation from soldier to infantry man. On January 28th 235 men showed up with the same goal on their mind to join the sacred brotherhood known as the infantry. The infantry that stormed up the beaches of Normandy directly into Nazi machine gun fire in world war 2 the infantry that fought in the squaller conditions of Vietnam and today fight in the blazing deserts for the Middle East. After a long, painful, strenuous 14 weeks that was a test of physical and mental strength of 10 weeks of basic soldier training that consisted of basic rifle marksmanship, hand grenades, machine guns, chemical weapons training 5 long painful road marches with a 50 to 60lbs ruck sack. Then 4 weeks of infantry training that consists of room clearing and urban operations, hand to hand combat, and our final test 12 days in the unforgiving woods of Georgia practicing battle drills, squad and platoon movements, reacting to mortar fire, reacting to ambush, squad attack and many other maneuvers to win battles on today’s battlefield, running on very minimal sleep little food and the punishing weather of Georgia through the coldest of rains and the hottest most humid days 135 infantry man were made ready to take on any challenges of today’s modern battlefield. This is the beginning for all of them, we could find ourselves fighting in the mountains of Afghanistan or the blistering heat of Africa wherever we fight we stand ready to take on any foe and complete the mission with minimum casualties and maximum damage to the enemy I stand under one god and one nation ready to serve the people of my country, I will fight to my death if needed I fear no enemy we are the infantry #usarmy #airborne #hooah #infantry #uspride #iamsunburst

@iamsunburst Thank you for helping us today with your Cadets. Firehawks were very very helpful and we truly needed the support. I talked to the girls, gave them a little history of LA on Cloud9. The work that we do on the streets and here at MacArthur Park. Talked to them about being compassionate, giving without expectation and respect. I think they understand now from today’s experience. Hope that we can continue to get your support in the near future. Thank you - @cl9udia
