FORT LEE, Va. – Spc. Joshua McDowell, the Army Reserve Soldier of the Year, completed his board appearance this afternoon before a panel of Command Sgts. Majors during day one of the Department of the Army Best Warrior Competition.

While somewhat nervous before entering the board room, McDowell said afterwards that he felt confident during his time in the room.

“It’s nice to get through the first event and start preparing for the rest which I’m sure will be more physical and demanding,” McDowell said.

While McDowell said he felt answered two-thirds of the questions correctly, he said there were some surprises.

“There were a couple that surprised me … but for the most part, though they may have changed them around a little or different from what I’ve heard in the past, I’m familiar with the knowledge.”

It’s early to be tonight as both McDowell and his NCO counterpart, Sgt. David Rider, prepare for tomorrow’s schedule.

An early wake-up awaits the pair as the head out for the Army Physical Fitness Test consisting of timed sit-ups, push-ups and 2-mile run. Then it’s on to the written exam and essay.

The pace will slow down a little tomorrow afternoon when hometown and local-area media will have an opportunity to meet all 24 Warriors (12 NCOs and 12 Soldiers) during a media event.

Check back tomorrow for more updates.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what
    you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

  11. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it
    out better?

  12. Hi there friends, how is the whole thing, and what you wish for to say about this paragraph, in
    my view its genuinely awesome in support of me.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
