The Army’s finest Warriors, representing 14 commands from across the Army, will gather at Fort Lee, Va., to compete in the 2014 Best Warrior Competition. The four-day intensive competition will determine the 2014 U.S. Army’s Noncommissioned Officer and Soldier of the Year.

The Best Warrior Competition promotes espirit de corps and recognizes Soldiers who demonstrate commitment to the Army values, embody the Warrior Ethos and represent the Force of the Future.

BWC tests competitors’ Army aptitude: conquering urban warfare simulations, board interviews, physical fitness tests, essays and Warrior tasks and battle drills relevant to today’s operating environment.

Warriors selected to compete for the prestigious titles have already mastered a series of benchmarks throughout the year to qualify for the Army-wide competition
