Fort Bliss' Sgt. 1st Class Amir Ahmad, enlisted aide to the commanding general, pins on badges on uniform during the Enlisted Aide event March 11. Ahmad earned the Army Senior Enlisted Aide of the Year award. Along with the award, he received a knife set, one week of culinary training at the Culinary Institute of America, and a chef jacket with his name and new title. This was the first year this event had been added to the competition. The candidates had to cook, prepare and serve a four-course meal of their choice. They also had a board appearance, a written exam, and a uniform practical exercise. The winner will attend the Connelly Award Ceremony located in Atlanta, Ga., in April. The winner will also go on to compete at the Department of Defense level Enlisted Aide of the Year Competition.
