Airborne Army Reserve Soldiers Compete to Be the Best Warrior

BELTON, Mo.—Bodies were bruised, endurance and skills were tested, and minds were challenged as Soldiers from across the U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) competed for the coveted title “Best Warrior.”

The competition brought together the top Soldiers from USACAPOC(A) subordinate units from a 31-state region and Puerto Rico. During the four days of competition, the best of the best were pushed to their limits, both physically and mentally.

When the dust settled and the sweat dried, two Soldiers bested the competition in the noncommissioned officer and junior enlisted categories, respectively—Sgt. 1st Class Justin Kime and Spc. Jeffrey-Tyler Eisner.

Obstacle courses, Army physical fitness tests, weapons qualifications, Army ground combatives and timed ruck-marches tested the physical toughness of each contender.
