Mike Hoover, Directorate of Public Works maintenance mechanic, uses a tile roller to set the seams on removable artificial turf panels while installing them in the Harney Sports Complex Annex, also known as the bubble gym, Oct. 8. The annex will be closed through Oct. 17 for the renovation and equipment reset. The renovation will provide lanes for soldiers to train for the new Army Combat Fitness Test, which includes a sprint-drag-carry 25-meter lane run. Classes normally conducted in the annex will resume after the closure, and fitness equipment will still be available. An additional ACFT training area will be added at Sherman Army Airfield after the annex renovation. Photo by Prudence Siebert/Fort Leavenworth Lamp
