  Leadership El Paso
  Sgt. 1st Class Edward Taitano, rappel master, stands on a mound to
  demonstrate to the Leadership El Paso participants how to correct-
  ly assemble a Swiss basket seat to use while rappelling off the
  tower. The entire tour of Fort Bliss illustrated what Soldiers do by
  hands-on interaction with Soldiers and a chance to experience the
  Engagement Skills Trainer, Virtual Combat Convoy Trainer as well as
  the Improved Maneuver Training Simulator. In the 27th year of
  Leadership El Paso, the participants were selected by a committee
  which looks for individuals who demonstrate commitment and moti-
  vation toward serving El Paso. From a wide-ranging selection of
  individuals active in business, education, politics, art, religion, the
  government and community organizations, participants are chosen
  as well for a variety of ethnic and minority backgrounds to give you
  an idea about El Paso’s diversity.

 Freedom Fiesta
 kicks off
 Monitor Staff
    For the third straight year, the El Paso communi-
 ty is showing its appreciation of the military by
 hosting Freedom Fiesta.
    The Soldiers Appreciation Picnic was the kickoff
 event for this year’s Freedom Fiesta. Free food and
 drinks and an afternoon of games were part of the
 event sponsored by Raytheon. The picnic was
 organized by the Association of the United States
 Army, the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce,
 the El Paso Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the
