The winners will compete at the Region 7 Best Warrior Competition in New Mexico in May 2018. “The biggest competition is what’s taking place inside of them and the battle … inside their mind and their heart … which one are you going to let win?” said Command Sgt. Maj. Russell Hamilton of the Colorado Army National Guard said the competition is mentally and emotionally challenging, and encourages a “warrior spirit” among participants.
