Army, led by guard Ronald Bartley of Yongsan Garrison, went unbeaten and captured the gold medal in the 2004 All-Armed Forces men’s basketball tournament championship in Fort Carson, Colo., last weekend.

Army beat Air Force 95-89 in the final. Air Force lost just twice during the tournament, both times to Army.

Bartley, who led the Runnin’ Rebels to a 37-5 overall record and five titles in as many command and open tournaments during the 2003-04 Korea interservice season, was one of three soldiers selected from overseas to the 2004 All-Armed Forces team.

He’s joined by Craig Marcellin of Schweitzgen, Germany, and Eloi J. Perry of Mannheim, Germany, on the 11-player All-Armed Forces team, now in training through June 17 at Ramstein Air Base, Germany.

They’ll compete for the United States in the International Military Sports Council (CISM) championship scheduled for June 17-27 at Zagreb, Croatia.
