FORT DEVENS, Mass. – The stakes were higher than ever for 10 U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers competing in the 377th Theater Sustainment Command Best Warrior Competition held for the first time this year at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. Only one noncommissioned officer and one junior Soldier could represent the 377th TSC at the U.S. Army Reserve Command’s competition, and only the best rose to the top during the weeklong event April 13-17.
The Best Warrior Competition is an overall measure of Soldier knowledge, physical fitness, mental stamina and much more. Troops started each day as early as 4 a.m. and finished as late as midnight or later during the contest. Planners build the schedule in a way that brings out a variety of skills developed through focused training.
