The 3rd Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) has placed a number of photos on their Facebook page of their Expert Infantry Badge testing last week. For those of you who have no experience with the EIB, it’s a series of combat-related tests that an infantryman must pass in order to earn the coveted EIB;
There is no room for error in the test, a candidate must have a perfect score on the test to earn the EIB. The photo at the top is during the final mile of the 12-mile road march at Fort AP Hill. According to the 3rd IR;
353 candidates attempted to earn the coveted EIB; only 128 received it by the end of the week.
Yeah, it’s a big f###ing deal.
