Soldiers attending the Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Organizational Day event held at Belton Lake Outdoor Recreational Area Aug. 8 had a little fun at the expense of their fellow Soldier. While setting up the moon bounce, two soldiers took the opportunity to zip their buddy inside. After a brief lock-in inside the moon bounce, he was let go so the children of the families attending could have their turn. The day was organized for the troopers and their families as appreciation for their hard work and continued support of the troop.
