“I chose to compete in the Best Warrior Competition because it is a great way to not only test, but develop my warrior skills. I believe that the experience I will gain from training for and competing in the Best Warrior Competition will subsequently enhance my ability to be an excellent NCO.”
Staff Sgt. Nathan D. Partridge
