Troopers with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division participated in the inaugural “Greywolf” Sexual Assault Awareness Month Golf Scramble and came together to learn more about the Army’s Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Prevention program April 15 at the Courses of Clear Creek.

“I think this event is great in a couple of ways,” said Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Branom, the sexual assault response coordinator for 3rd Brigade. “The soldiers spend the day golfing with their buddies, and after we talk about sexual assault and how it affects the Army.”

Branom organized the event to support the brigade’s SHARP program.

“The Army is addressing sexual assault by first focusing on prevention through education and training,” Branom said. “That is what we are doing with the Sexual Assault Awareness Month Golf Scramble.”

Soldiers played three, nine-hole courses.

Troopers of various skill levels were divided into four-person teams and progressed through the courses one hole at a time.

“I come here every weekend,” said Spc. Tyler Jones. “This is a great team-building exercise especially when everyone on my team is in my platoon.”

The golfing event had two goals — to enable soldiers to enjoy a day of golf and to raise their awareness of the effects sexual assault has on the Army.

“It is great the brigade would let us come out here (for this event),” said Staff Sgt. Ricky Laney.

As the soldiers finished their round of golf, they met at the clubhouse to eat and received an informational seminar on how sexual assault affects the Army and how to be leaders in prevention.

“We need to create a positive environment of trust and respect, so every person can succeed and achieve their full potential,” Branom said. “Working together and demonstrating the seven Army values can help foster that environment.”
