2nd Lt. Rollin Barton, an engineer officer from Springfield, Ill., assigned to 14th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, checks his sight picture one last time before the Expert Soldier Badge carbine/rifle and light grenade launcher event at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Oct. 29, 2019. "To be part of the first group to participate in ESB in the Army - that's huge," Barton said. "I can only take this opportunity to do the best I can, qualify, and get it, that way I can train up the next Soldiers and next officers that come through after me."
