FORT SHAFTER — The 311th Signal Command (Theater) held its annual organizational week, July 13-17, and every morning brought something unexpected as Soldiers participated in a wide range of early morning exercises focused on teamwork and fun.

The 311th Signal Command (Theater) held its annual organizational week, July 13-17, and every morning brought something unexpected as Soldiers participated in a wide range of early morning exercises focused on teamwork and fun.

“The intent for organizational week was to focus on events that would bring the unit together through competition and fun while still executing our day-to-day mission,” said Capt. Mark Bonaudi, commander, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 311th SC(T). “The first three mornings’ physical readiness training sessions fostered competition, imagination, teamwork, physical fitness and fun.”

Signaleers participated in a scavenger hunt, a relay race at Hickam Beach and Ultimate Frisbee at Aliamanu Military Reservation.

At the Schofield Barracks range, safety is always the No. 1 rule but everyone was encouraged to have fun and enjoy the experience as Soldiers re-certificated on the M-9 and M-16.

“The range was a planned and inevitable event that brought all of the military together outside of the office while we fulfilled a semi-annual training requirement. The excitement of training with live ammunition, especially for a strategic signal organization, is always a positive event,” said Bonaudi. “The amount of planning and teamwork that went into this range was a monumental event in and of itself, which forced Soldiers from across the organization to work together to accomplish a common goal.”

Friday marked the end of the organizational week, and the Soldiers and civilians of the 311th ventured out to Foster’s Point at Hickam Beach, for a day of fun in the sun. In spite of a brief torrential downpour, the group was all smiles and laughs as the weather cleared and the blue skies appeared.

“The week culminated with organizational day filled with food and fun at the beach where Soldiers, civilians, families and friends could gather and decompress,” Bonaudi said.
