Soldier and NCO of the Year Announced at Best Warrior Competition

"The Army on Monday named its 2017 Soldier of the Year and Noncommissioned Officer the Year following the annual Best Warrior Competition.

The competition, which ran last week at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, tested 22 soldiers from 11 commands on such tasks as urban warfare simulation, physical fitness tests, written exams and board interviews.

Spc. Hazen Ham and Staff Sgt. Ryan McCarthy were announced as the winners during a luncheon at the Association of the United States Army’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., on Monday." 

Army to Return to “Pink and Greens”

"The Army is working on a revival of a World War II-era service uniform, and prototypes of the proposed “pinks and greens” made their debut on the conference floor of the annual AUSA meeting in Washington, D.C.

A handful of soldiers are roaming around the conference in variations of the iconic olive uniform, testing out skirts vs. pants and folding caps vs. service caps.

“We want you to go check them out, ask them questions, and let us know what you think,” Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey told soldiers on Tuesday."
