RED CLOUD GARRISON - Military personnel from Warrior Country were briefed about the coming Commander's Cup Feb. 25 in the USAG-RC Community Activity Center. The purpose of the meeting was to inform representatives of each competing unit the rules of the Commander's Cup competition.

"In the past two years, there has been a big push for more positive activities within Warrior Country," said Randy Behr, Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation sports director, explaining why the Commander's Cup is valuable to the Warrior Country Soldiers and Airmen attending the briefing.
