    The 2021 Best Warrior Competition is an annual competition that brings together the best Soldiers from across the U.S. Army Reserve to earn the title of “Best Warrior” amongst their peers.

    The 3d MCDS hosts five Soldiers this year as they compete in vigorous events to win the division title. Winners then go onto compete against other Soldiers across the Army Reserve.

    The five Soldiers consist of: Staff Sgt. Ashley Sedrowski with the 405th Field Hospital, Staff Sgt. Norberto Domingo with the 332nd Medical Brigade, Sgt. Nicholas Mitchell with the 338th Med Bde, Spc. Aerial Poole with the 444th Medical Ground Ambulance Company, and Spc. Angelo Madden with the 399th Field Hospital.

    The competition consists of an Army Combat Fitness Test, day and night land navigation, tactical combat casualty care scenarios, rifle marksmanship, 12-mile foot march carrying a 35 pound backpack, along with a written exam and essay.

    Selections for the Best Warrior winner and runner-up will be announced on Saturday.
