  • Four Soldiers and four noncommissioned officers from around the world faced off at the IMCOM Best Warrior competition at Camp Bullis, Texas.

The winners will be named IMCOM Soldier of the Year and NCO of the Year, and compete for Army Soldier and NCO of the year at Fort Lee, Va., in the fall. 

The Soldiers reached the IMCOM competition after winning installation and region levels. IMCOM has four regions: Pacific, Central, Atlantic and Europe.

"The Strength of our Nation is our Army, the Strength of our Army is our Soldiers, the Strength of our Soldiers is our Families, this is what makes us Army Strong!"

About the U.S. Army Installation Management Community:
IMCOM handles the day-to-day operations of U.S. Army installations
around the globe -- We are the Army's Home. Army installations are
communities that provide many of the same types of services expected
from any small city. Fire, police, public works, housing, and
child-care are just some of the things IMCOM does in Army communities
every day. We endeavor to provide a quality of life for Soldiers,
Civilians and Families commensurate with their service. Our
professional workforce strives to deliver on the commitments of the
Army Family Covenant, honor the sacrifices of military Families, and
enable the Army Force Generation cycle.

Our Mission: Our mission is to provide Soldiers, Civilians and their
Families with a quality of life commensurate with the quality of their
service.

Our Vision: Army installations are the Department of Defense standard
for infrastructure quality and are the provider of consistent, quality
services that are a force multiplier in supported organizations'
mission accomplishment, and materially enhance Soldier, Civilian and
Family well-being and readiness.
