SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The Warrior Brigade kicked off Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month with its annual SHARP Ruck Challenge, here, April 1.

More than 280 Soldiers and leaders from 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, moved a total weight of 9,800 pounds a total of 1,680 miles across Schofield Barracks in support of the SHARP program.

“Anytime you put a month on something, it’s obviously important,” said 1st Lt. William Scherbarth, platoon leader, 2nd Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment. “It’s got to be constant, especially when we’re integrating more females into combat arms.”

For the program to be more effective, more junior leaders need to get involved in it, said Scherbarth.

“It’s important for younger Soldiers, being able to see their leaders come out and do stuff like this,” said Staff Sgt. Sidney Hays, an intelligence analyst assigned to 1st Battalion, 14th Inf. Regt. “By having events like this is a really great way to get Soldiers to get more involved.”

U.S. Army-Hawaii has events coordinated across the island, from the “Take Back the Night” walk on Aliamanu Military Reservation (see News Briefs, p. A-6, for more information); an information expo, April 29, at Schofield’s Nehelani, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; to the garrison’s Denim Day, also April 29.
