80th Training Command
Approximately 18 Reserve Soldiers from across the nation, competed in the 80th Training Command (TASS) annual Best Warrior Competition on Fort Knox this week.
The 100th Training Division hosted the event, which identifies the best competitors in the enlisted and noncommissioned officer categories.
Competition events included an urban assault course, physical fitness, weapons handling, rifle and pistol marksmanship, drill and ceremony, land navigation, and first aid. The Soldiers will also take a written exam and report before a panel of sergeants major in full dress uniform to answer questions ranging from military knowledge to current events.
Competitors were selected from among more than 6,800 Reserve Soldiers assigned to the 80th TC’s subordinate divisions—the 100th TD, headquartered here; the 102nd Training Division, Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.; and the 94th Training Division, Fort Lee, Va.
The 80th TC winners will advance to the United States Army Reserve Command Best Warrior Competition.
An award ceremony will be held for the winners at The General George Patton Museum and Center of Leadership tomorrow.
