Senior Airman Courtney Beard low-crawls through a mud pit on Victory Base Complex, Iraq. Beard, a 108th Wing Airman, became the first female Airman to ever complete the Army's 18-hour Spur Ride after completing a series of physical and mental tests held by III Corps, Task Force Phantom, Victory Base Complex, Iraq. The Order of the Spur is a Cavalry tradition but is open to any service member that serves with a Cavalry unit. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Kelly K. Morehouse)
