2015 U.S. Army Reserve NCO and Soldier of the Year
The Army Reserve’s best will compete for the title of Best Warrior at Fort Bragg, N.C., May 4-8, 2015. This is the first year the competition is being held at this location.
Approximately 40-45 Soldiers will spend the week competing in a variety of challenges including hand-to-hand combat, firing weapons, the Army Physical Fitness Test, and various mystery events.
The two winners will be selected as the Army Reserve’s Soldier and NCO of the Year and will compete against winners from the major Army commands in October at Fort Lee, Va.
Many of the competitors military backgrounds and experience cover the entire spectrum of the Army Reserve, with many of them having deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq or Kuwait. Their career fields include military police, engineering, medical, human resources and intelligence. They hail from all across the county.
