How did you prepare for this year’s CHEST Challenge finals?
After completing all the military training to include cyber awareness, hot and cold weather training, and learning the difference between a slip and a fall, we feel prepared for pretty much anything. Ian also prepared by changing bedtime story time for his kids into reading them CHEST SEEK™ questions.
Who do you think is your biggest competitor?
It is clearly “THE” Ohio State University. Since they have filed a patent for the word “the,” we are not sure how to answer any questions in [removed due to trademark] competition. It’s a clever move for which we have no response.
If you could choose a team mascot, what would it be?
Our team mascot would be the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog from Monty Python. We may look very cute and friendly, but we “have a vicious streak a mile wide!”
If you could choose a team uniform, what would it be?
Space suits in honor of COL Morgan—who is currently serving on the ISS as the first Army doctor in space
What is your team cheer or theme song? Why?
“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift—just like the 2018-2019 Toronto Raptors, we have put together our 1-year dream team, and then we will all go our own respective ways next year after winning the championship.
If you win, how will you celebrate?
Definitely take the fellowship out for celebratory drinks in New Orleans
