The competition was held at Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis, Texas. All competitors first passed a 100-question written test and wrote an essay about current events. They passed the Army Physical Fitness Test, were questioned by boards of senior NCOs and demonstrated marksmanship with M-16 rifles. They negotiated an urban orienteering course both by day and night and completed an obstacle course. In tactical scenarios, they treated and evacuated simulated casualties of a roadside bomb, then cleared a building under fire. Finally, the competitors squared off in a combatives tournament.

Competition actually began last year when local units selected their best Soldiers and NCOs. Local winners competed in each of six regional medical commands. The regional winners then joined representatives of Dental Command, Veterinary Command, the AMEDD Center and School and Medical Research and Materiel Command for the finals at Fort Sam Houston. Aca,!A"We conduct these competitions to recognize the best Soldiers, but it is primarily about training Aca,!" it is not just a competition.

He lists combatives as one of his hobbies, and it showed as he won the NCO tournament. Farrier has been in the Army three years and has qualified as a Certified Pharmacy Technician. He keeps in shape by boxing and playing Rugby for his post team. Farrier said winning the title was a personal challenge he set for himself. He said anyone competing at this level has to have a plan and stick to it. Aca,!A"DonAca,!a,,ct let anyone tell you that you canAca,!a,,ct do it,Aca,!A? he added.
