Staff Sgt. Benjamin Latham, a U.S. Army Reserve combat engineer representing the 108th Training Command (Initial Entry Training), prepares for an interview following a presentation board during the 2020 U.S. Army Reserve Best Warrior Competition on Sept. 9, at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin. Approximately 50 Soldiers from across the nation travelled to compete in this year’s Best Warrior, hosted from Sept. 4-10, 2020. The 2020 BWC is an annual competition that brings in the best Soldiers across the U.S. Army Reserve to earn the title of “Best Warrior” among their peers. Competitors are evaluated on their individual ability to adapt and overcome challenging scenarios and battle-focused events, which test their technical and tactical abilities under stress and extreme fatigue.
