Marksmanship, physical endurance, mental agility, leadership, impeccable appearance, toughness and a never-quit attitude were all qualities that were put to the test recently when 10 soldiers competed in the Best Warrior Competition held at Fort Hood.

The III Corps Best Warrior Competition included testing of each individual’s fitness level, military knowledge, warrior skills and preparedness in several — and often very physical — events, representing 90,000 soldiers across five installations: Fort Hood; Fort Bliss, Texas; Fort Carson, Colorado; Fort Riley, Kansas; and Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
