This past weekend kicked off the 2020 Army National Guard National Best Warrior Competition, and this year it's held in the Magnolia State.
Mississippi's own sergeant Mitchell Scofield of the Mississippi National Guard is this year's winner of the competition, along with a member of the Arizona National Guard.
Sergeant Scofield was competing after his recent win at the Region 3 Best Warrior Competition in South Carolina. He beat out the Best of the Best from 10 states to compete in the national competition.
Competitors from all over the country began arriving this past Saturday and were welcomed by members of the Mississippi National Guard. The event took place at Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg and Camp McCain in Grenada, wrapping up Wednesday.
