Spc. Danielle N. Evans (left), 408th Human Resource Company, charges across the finish line to take first place during the run event for the Army Physical Fitness Test. The APFT was the first of 12 challenges in the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command 2012 Best Warrior competition. Held from March 29-April 1, at Fort Dix, N.J., the competition tested Evans 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. “All the skills we use in the competition - these are all basic skills that every soldier should know,” said Evans, who placed as a runner-up for the enlisted soldiers. “A competition like this reminds us, ‘hey you need to know what you’re doing as a soldier’ because, any time, you can be called, so you need to stand ready.” 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.
