More than 70 people, split into 18 teams, competed in the event, which consisted of a total of 1,010 repetitions between 11 exercises. The repetitions symbolized McCaskill’s operating initials, a unique “XX.” Gaddy, a U.S. Air Force senior airman, and Hill, a technical sergeant, are both 82nd ERQS pararescuemen.
