Guardians Enter the Arena

Character. Connection. Commitment. Courage.

Guardians recently participated in the first Guardian Arena competition at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Fla., to test themselves mentally and physically. The team event also included civilians and airmen assigned to the Space Force.

The competition was designed to instill esprit de corps and allow participants to use the guardian Character, Connection, Commitment and Courage — values of the service members' handbook, which provides guidance for how they should live.
