FORT HOOD, March 25--Trying to walk a straight line wearing visual impairment goggles is Sgt. 1st Class Greg Wood, who is assigned to the Warrior Transition Brigade. Looking on is Staff Sgt. Machin McHargue,  a squad leader for C Co., 1st Bn., WTB, who helped organize the company's Safety Stand Down Day training, which was observed brigade-wide March 25.  The goggles simulate the effects of alcohol impairment equal to nearly double the legal limit. Soldiers also received awareness training in motorcycle, boating and automobile safety. Safety stand down days are held Army wide several times a year and promote recreational and workplace safety. (Photo by Gloria Montgomery, WTB PAO)
