CAMP COINER, South Korea — Soldiers from the 1st Signal Brigade spent Thursday brushing up on the basics.

The unit, like almost every unit in the Army, spends each Thursday morning in “Sergeant’s Time Training,” which allows soldiers to focus on basic military skills.

Thursday’s training for the brigade’s 201st Signal Company included using specialized equipment for decontaminating soldiers and vehicles after chemical attacks and maintaining Humvees.

Fellow brigade members spent the day at Camp Stanley, in Uijeongbu, working on their combat skills.
