On June 28, 2013, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jason Manella, Fremont, Calif. native, was named as the Army Reserve Best Warrior Noncommissioned Officer of the Year following a challenging week of Soldier skills competition at Fort McCoy, WI.

Competition included "the Army Physical Fitness Test consisting of push-ups, sit-ups and a two mile-run; a written examination on general military topics; fire M-4 rifles; negotiate an Urban Orienteering Course; and prove their mettle in other tests of skill such as hand-to-hand combat, first aid and various mystery events."

Sgt. Manella was one of 39 competitors from 205,000 Army Reserve selected to compete. He will now go on to represent the Army Reserve in the Department of the Army Best Warrior Competition held in October at Fort Lee, VA.
