Wednesday, May 27, 2015

The Wisconsin Army National Guard's Soldier of the Year finished a whisper short of winning the 2015 Region IV Best Warrior Competition, held May 11-14 at Camp Atterbury, Indiana.

Spc. Derrek Ziegler — a member of Headquarters Troop, 1st Squadron, 105th Cavalry — finished second in a contest of the best lower enlisted Soldiers from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio.

"I could not be prouder of the tremendous effort Spc. Ziegler put forth," said Command Sgt. Maj. Bradley Shields, the Wisconsin Army National Guard's senior enlisted advisor. "[He] was a mere handful of points away from winning the competition. His efforts speak volumes for himself, his unit, and especially his sponsor, Sgt. Talon Dumke."
