U.S. Army Europe, Best Warrior Competition

Meet the 2019 Competitors


U.S. Army units from across Europe converge annually to compete for the title of Best Warrior. The week-long event tests Soldier skills, endurance, fortitude and resourcefulness as well as intellectual and problem-solving capabilities.

While some of the competition tasks are standard such as the Army Physical Fitness Test, written test, marksmanship, ruck march, land navigation and command sergeants major board; some of the challenges such as chemical defense and medical tasks - added to the stress of fitting everything into a few short days - makes the competition extra tough. 

Winners of the European Best Warrior Competition move on to compete at the U.S. Army Best Warrior event held at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia.
