Sgt. 1st Class Eteru Ane, of Pago Pago, American Samoa, is backlit by the setting sun as he heads toward the last station of the day, an uphill Hummvee push, during Task Force Attack’s (1-227th AV) winter spur ride on December 7, 2011 at Forward Operating Base Sharana, Afghanistan. More than 40 troopers tested their skills to become members of “The Order of the Spur” and earn the right to wear silver cavalry spurs. Photo by the US Army.
