Fort Knox, Kentucky native Sarah Cudd fought her way to become an army captain, but her passion made it possible. Part of the training that Cudd went through included going through a very tough challenge for the Public Health Command. She thought that this wouldn’t be an issue for her at all, since the 29 year old was in good shape. Just feet away from the finished line, she dropped down to the ground and curled up into a ball. What happened next was really stunning for everyone.
The Grueling Physical Test
Cudd and the rest of the soldiers in her crew needed to pass this challenge in order to earn the Expert Field Medical Badge. This award is given to military personnel who are able to endure both physical and written challenges, and it is no easy feat to do.
Down for the Count
Cudd was well aware of the fact that this was a tough endeavor. With a pass rate of just 17%, most people don’t actually pass it. Perhaps it was this fact that crossed her mind when she fell down to the ground during the challenge.
