- military service members put- those traits on display during- the second-ever defenders ruck- challenge and obstacle course - at keesler air force base.- participants had to achieve - certain objectives with their - teams on a set course.- stand up- "one of the key components of today's challenge was the ammo- can carry."

Sot-staff sgt jasmine castaneda- 81st security forces- squadron- "it consists of two laps around you come back in you do some- team endurance, and - then you ammo carry across the- way, do a tire flip down the- track, come over and do - some pull-ups, jumping squats - and then another two laps for - finish.

For some, like airman basic - charles davidson, one - particular part of the event is- tougher than the others.- sot-airman basic charles- davidson, participant - "the tire flip.

It's a lot of weight, it goes on the plane so- you know it's heavy.
