A 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) sergeant has once again advanced in the Army’s Best Warrior competition, taking first place among participating troops in the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.
The sergeant, whose name cannot be released because of security concerns connected with his duties, previously had won Best Warrior in the Army’s 1st Special Operations Command, which includes the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne).
The soldier’s latest victory has earned him a spot in the upcoming Army-wide Best Warrior competition. That contest, set for Sept. 30 through Oct. 5, will feature 22 soldiers from 11 Army commands competing at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia and at the Pentagon.
The local soldier was chosen by his team sergeant to compete in this year’s Best Warrior, which began with a contest among his 7th Group peers.
