Woodstock native Airman 1st Class Ziven Drake, 29, has been a crew chief with the Green Mountain Boys for almost four years. Back in late  2011 she was informed about the the Interallied Confederation Reserve Officers, recently rebranded as Team USA Military.  She looked into it and a few months later found herself just outside of Warsaw, Poland, competing with NATO and NATO-allied countries.

The pentathlon includes demanding activities like swimming an obstacle course in full gear, rifle and pistol marksmanship, combat casualty care, land navigation on a 10-15 kilometer course, and a written test on the Laws of Armed Conflict.
