Shannon Baird (center right), a performance enhancement specialist with the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness-Performance and Resilience Enhancement Program on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., listens attentively to every detail as Sgt. Michael Davis, a human intelligence collector with Company B, 109th Military Intelligence Battalion, gives the members of his company a short pre-execution class Aug. 10 on countering improvised explosive devices during convoy movement as part of a 10-day field training exercise to prepare the battalion for its upcoming deployment within the next year.
