Story by Staff Sgt. Charles Crail
FORT BRAGG, N.C. - MPs swept the top titles of Noncommissioned Officer and Soldier of the Year after a week of grueling non-stop completion in record-breaking summer heat at Fort Bragg, June 20.
Sgt. 1st Class Cameron Abbott and Spc. Michael McCollett, both representing 16th Military Police Brigade, were recognized as the XVIII Airborne Corps Noncommissioned Officer and Soldier of the Year 2014, at McKellar's Lodge.
Twenty noncommissioned officers and Soldiers from across XVIII Abn. Corps competed in the NCOY/SOY competition at Fort Bragg June 16-20.
Up next, Abbott and McCollett will move on to compete in the FORSCOM competition, where they will once again be tested to see if they will advance to the final Department of the Army level, with prospects of becoming the Army's 2014 Noncomissioned Officer and Soldier of the Year.
