In its ongoing effort to build strong, cohesive teams, the Army is launching a new competition focused on groups of soldiers.
The Army’s inaugural Best Squad Competition will kick off in September, Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston said during the recent Maneuver Warfighter Conference at Fort Benning, Georgia.
“For over two years I’ve talked about the importance of building a cohesive team that is highly trained, disciplined and fit,” Grinston said, according to the Army. “Now it’s time to measure ourselves against that standard.”
