Williams to compete in military skills competition

Army Cadet Rambi K. Williams is a member of one of only eight teams throughout the U.S. Army Cadet Command to compete in this year’s Sandhurst Military Skills Competition at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, N.Y.

The military skills competition includes cadets from selected ROTC detachments as well as cadets from West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School and international teams from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in Britain, the Royal Military College from Canada, the National Military Academy from Afghanistan, the Royal Military College from Australia, the Military Academy of Taiwan and the Chilean Military School. Each team consists of a nine-member squad, each with at least one female, that must complete a series of military tasks during a rapid, non-tactical move along a prescribed seven-mile course. The cadets are tested on first aid, traversing a rope bridge, marksmanship, navigation and fitness. They are also tested on their mental agility, ability to assimilate problems, decision-making in a complex, stressful environment, teamwork and communication.

Williams is currently attending Michigan State University, East Lansing. She is the daughter of Sterry Williams and W. Rambi Williams, both of Rockford. The cadet graduated in 2008 from Rockford High School.
