Ready for the board:

SFC Jacqueline Craig’s twelve year-old son and his friends think his mom is cool and gets to do cool things in the Army Reserve. The feeling that gives her is one of the things that motivate her today as she slips into her class A’s in preparation for her board appearance. The other is her Soldiers. She feels she owes it to them to lead by example. She is one of two females here and, at 43, the oldest attending competitor. Craig, a level three combatives master trainer with 14 years of service under her belt is philosophical about what the competition means to her and the Soldiers she dedicates herself to mentoring. (video ).

Today’s board will be followed bywritten essays, and later tonight, after dinner the competitors will meet for land navigation plotting. After that, I hear the vacation is over…

    Maybe I’m missing the spirtit of the event, but I think the “best warrior competition” is occuring in Afghanistan.

    The Best Warrior Competition is a program the Army uses to select its top Soldiers and NCOs as part of its Soldier and NCO of the Year program. This is the Army Reserve version to select its best for the Army competition. Of course we salute all our brothers and sister serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and our sole mission here is to support the war effort. But the institutional Army is flexible enough to focus on that mission, and also continue other key and essential morale building programs back home.
