14 of NY Army Guard’s best face off for titles

LATHAM, N.Y. (AP) – Fourteen soldiers and sergeants
from the New York Army National Guard will square off this weekend in
the 2-day Best Warrior competition.

The soldiers and non-commissioned officers come
from units across the state. They will gather at the Division of
Military and Naval Affairs headquarters in Latham. They'll be tested on
physical fitness, weapons and navigational skills, and other military
knowledge.

The top finishers will compete in a regional competition. Winners there will go to an all-Army competition later this year.
