Brendan Allen, a support signals specialist with the Utah Army National Guard’s 1st Battalion, 211th Aviation Regiment, engages targets with an M4 carbine during the competition. Competitors were tested on a variety of tactical and technical skills in a physically and mentally challenging environment. Olson had similar thoughts.

Maj. Christopher Miller, the noncommissioned officer in charge of the competition, the events were designed to be physically and mentally challenging and measure the abilities, skills and knowledge of all competing Soldiers. “It’s all the tasks on top of each and the constant stress of moving, communicating and executing that cause the most difficulty in this competition, ” he said.

Friedman treats a simulated casualty during the Army Warrior Tasks portion of the competition. For Friedman, and all the competitors, the journey to the Army Guard competition all began at their unit.

From there, they competed against Soldiers at the battalion, brigade and state levels before moving on to the regional competition. Nathan Bogart, assigned to the Alabama Army National Guard’s 20th Special Forces Group, plots grid coordinates on map prior to heading out on the day land navigation portion of the competition.

The competition saw high levels of camaraderie, said Olson, adding that competitors often cheered each other on and urged each other to put forth maximum effort. The regional winners then competed in the 13-event Army Guard competition, which included land navigation, first-aid, an obstacle course, marksmanship drills and for the first time, the new Army Combat Fitness Test.

Ryan Hour, an electronics technician with the Missouri Army National Guard's 1107th Aviation Group, the fitness test was made more challenging by physically demanding competition events held earlier in the day. The land navigation portion, which began at 3 a.m. and lasted more than six hours, proved almost as challenging and left many competitors with visible scratches on their hands and faces.

“If they are willing to dig through thorn brushes, friars and barbed wire fences just to get to a point in the woods, it shows that everybody is motivated.” The competition switched gears at the halfway point with board interviews that tested the competitors' mental prowess.

1st Class Martin Cozens, with the New York Army Guard's Company A, 2nd Battalion, 108th Infantry Regiment, said the mental portion was just as important as the physical one. Kurt Van De Graaff, an explosive ordnance disposal specialist with the Arizona Army National Guard’s 363rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, heaves a 10-pound medicine ball for distance.“You just keep drinking water, keep putting your left boot in front of your right,” he said.

Kenneth Left, a Michigan Army Guard member who also competed and would sometimes pair with Eager, the hot days were welcome. “I thoroughly enjoy this,” said Left, a fire control specialist with 1st Battalion, 182nd Field Artillery Regiment.

But the camaraderie attached to the competition, said Olson, made the unforgiving sun all the more bearable. “When the heat started to ramp up, it was easy to let your mind take over and tell you how tired you are,” said Olson, who charged to the ruck march finish line with Friedman by his side.
