    FORT INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa. –The Pennsylvania National Guard will host the 17th annual 2018 Army National Guard Best Warrior Competition here July 22-27.

    Preparations are underway to accommodate 14 competitors and visitors from New York, Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, Georgia, Illinois, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Nebraska, Oregon, South Dakota, Colorado and Utah.

    This is the first time the installation has been selected to host the national event.
