U.S. Army Reserve Spc. Christopher Abell, a guitar player from Owensboro, Kentucky, with the 100th Army Band, 81st Readiness Division, navigates the weaver obstacle on the Fort Bragg Air Assault School obstacle course. Competitors are required to maintain three points of contact while going under the white edged planks and over the red edged ones. Thirty-six warriors continue to vie for the title of United States Army Reserve Best Warrior during the grueling multifaceted competition that has so far included elements of physical training, weapons marksmanship and familiarization, warrior tasks and battle drills, essay writing, German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge testing and many other events. The competition began 9 June and will conclude with an awards luncheon 15 June, 2018 (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Sgt. 1st Class Lisa M. Litchfield/released).
