Sgt. Steven Rovelstad negotiates a barricade as part of a reflexive fire exercise during the 2007 Noncommissioned Officer/Soldier of the Year competition Oct. 2 at Fort Lee, Va. The exercise prepares the Soldier for an upcoming "urban warfare" range event.
"To be the best warrior means representing the Army with pride and maintaining my proficiency in any task. I may not be the absolute best in the Army but I am among the best that are able to compete. Representing my command means a lot it is not for me but for those who cannot be there due to deployment, injury, or hardships."
Rovelstad is currently competing along with 25 other Soldiers in the Department of the Army Best Warrior Competition at Fort Lee, Va. Oct. 1-5.
