    Spc. Darryn E. Taylor, 811th Ordnance Company, conducts preventive maintenance checks and services during an Army Warrior Task at the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command 2012 Best Warrior competition. Taylor, a firefighter both in his civilian career and in the Army Reserve, enjoyed the chance to compete and challenge himself. “It’s a fun time,” he said. “It’s geared in a fun atmosphere. You’re competing with friends but, at the same time, it’s legitimate and real training … only a soldier [who] puts his best foot forward is actually going to get in first place.” Held from March 29-April 1, at Fort Dix, N.J., the competition tested Taylor and 11 other soldiers in day and night land navigation, weapons qualification, a 10-mile road march, and a range of Army Warrior Tasks. Competitors were also required to take a written exam, submit an essay and appear before a board of sergeants major. This year, the “Soldier of the Year” victory went to Spc. Christopher P. Fitt, 439th Quartermaster Company. Staff Sgt. John W. Schillereff, 38th Regional Support Group, won “Best Warrior” title for the non-commissioned officers. The two winners advance to the 377th Theater Sustainment Command Best Warrior competition.
