ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. (Sept. 17, 2015) -- Nine holes and five hazards brought together golf teams from 20th CBRNE Command (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosives) here Sept. 17.
The one-of-a-kind command hosted the inaugural All Hazards Golf Tournament at Aberdeen Proving Ground's Exton Golf Course.
Lt. Col. Charles A. Musante, the tournament coordinator, said nine teams and 35 golfers competed in the 9-hole tournament.
Musante, the 20th CBRNE Command assistant chief of staff for personnel (G-1), said the All Hazards Golf Tournament raised more than $500 for the command's upcoming CBRNE Ball.
The 20th CBRNE Command, the U.S. Defense Department's only multifunctional formation that combats CBRNE threats around the globe, added some unusual hazards to the tournament.
Instead of unplayable roughs and unreadable greens, the All Hazards warriors from 20th CBRNE Command had to overcome unique challenges from teeing off in body armor to putting around training aids.
Musante said the 20th CBRNE Command golf teams proved their mettle and overcame all of the hazards.
"We played golf," said Musante. "It was a perfect day."
