SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — As lengthy overseas deployments curtail, greater attention can now be given to longstanding Soldier and unit relationships within the community.

The 325th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, is doing its part through community outreach at Wahiawa Elementary School, here.

325th BSB “Mustangs” were on hand to support the “Heroes of Our Community” Field Day at Wahiawa Elementary School. Many organizations throughout the community, such as fire and police departments, also participated.

The goal of the event was to show the students the importance of perseverance.
“We are proud to have the opportunity to partner with Wahiawa Elementary School and work with the children,” said Maj. Heath Hawkes, BSB executive officer. “The 325th BSB looks forward to furthering our partnership by participating in other events in the near future.”

The Mustangs participated by running a child-friendly obstacle course for the students at Wahiawa Elementary. The obstacle course consisted of a tire flip, a low crawl, an over/under obstacle, a water balloon toss and a mini Ranger Wall.
All in all, the students and faculty loved the event.

“The kids are still buzzing about it, and the teachers are too,” said Grant Toyooka, Wahiawa Elementary School faculty member.

School and unit members described the field day as a great success that created a stronger relationship between the elementary school and the 325th BSB.
Both sides also expressed the desire to continue the outreach partnership in the future.
