FORT HOOD, Texas- Family members of Soldiers with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, joined their "Dealer" troopers, here, Aug. 20, during a one-mile fun run organized by the Family Readiness Group (FRG).

"The fun run was a great event to have before the kids went back to school. It was a success and we hope it gave spouses, children, and Soldiers an opportunity to be together and to be together with other Black Jack Dealer families," said the company FRG leader, Loretta Sponsler.

Battalion Avenue saw some new faces as kids and pets joined the Soldier foot traffic. The fun run started at the company's headquarters and continued on an out and back course-ending where it began. There were walkers and runners and many, many paws and furry faces.
