The U.S. Army Forces Command recognized 25 captains and 10 warrant officers from throughout the command Dec. 6 as part of FORSCOM's annual Gen. Douglas MacArthur Leadership Assessment at Fort Bragg, N.C.

The 35 FORSCOM officers and warrant officers will go on to participate in the Army-level awards, some of which may be picked in June 2020 for the Army-level national award. FORSCOM won 10 of 12 in the Army captain category and one of two in the chief warrant officer two category as part of the June 2019 awards announcement.

Army-level award recipients represent Soldiers from the regular Army, National Guard and Army Reserve. The Soldiers are selected by their commands for demonstrating ideals General MacArthur stood for -- including duty, honor and country.

This year's FORSCOM leadership candidates were evaluated on their board-nomination packet, a written essay on leadership, board appearance and Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) results.

"I have no concerns about the future of our Army because of all of you," said U.S. Army Forces Command Commanding General Gen. Michael Garrett. "We have a pretty good track record here at FORSCOM of winning the whole thing (the Army competition) and I don't think this year will be any different."

There are four top-scoring winners among the group. The FORSCOM winners are: Capt. Kristen Griest (Security Force Assistance Command); and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jason D. Richards (III Corps - 11th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade). The FORSCOM runners-up are: Capt. Christopher M. Jarrett (XVIII Airborne Corps - 101st Airborne Division); and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Dan C. Riggs (XVIII Airborne Corps - 101st Airborne Division).
