Video of Capt. Sarah Cudd picking herself up and finishing the 12 Mile Foot March required to earn the Army’s Expert Field Medical Badge has been viewed over 1.2 million times since a fellow soldier posted it on Facebook last week.
The video shows soldiers lining the course cheering as Cudd dropped to her knees and then used her rifle to pick herself up and complete the course. Assigned to Army Public Health Command at Fort Knox, Cudd was one of 46 to earn the badge that day.
Candidates must complete the 12 mile march in 3 hours in order to earn the badge. Below is the video. Here’s a link for mobile viewers. I won’t give away what time she completed it in.
