John Mundey wins U.S. Army Reserve Best Warrior Award

U.S. Army Reserve Spc. John Mundey was named as a winner of the 2018 U.S. Army Reserve Best Warrior Competition Best Warrior and Best Noncommissioned Officer in a ceremony at the Crown Complex in Fayetteville, N.C., on Friday, June 15.
Thirty-six U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers from U.S. Army Reserve commands throughout the world, with occupations from combat medic to musician and civilian careers ranging from law enforcement to laboratory specialist fought for the Best Warrior title held at Fort Bragg, N.C., June 10-15.
The Soldiers were tested in different Warrior skills, such as rappelling from a helicopter and marksmanship in various weapons systems, to distinguish themselves as the most capable, combat-ready, and lethal competitor. Warriors had to complete these tasks with little sleep, in rainy weather, and with temperatures approaching 100 degrees.
“The hardest part of the competition was adjusting to sleep,” said U.S. Army Reserve Spc.  Mundey. “You get into gear, and you get into the right mindset and things start to roll a little smooth.”
Mundey is a bridge crew member of the 459th Engineer Company (Multi-Role Bridge), 299th Combat Engineer Battalion, 412th Theater Engineer Command.
He is a 2010 graduate of Berkeley Springs High School.
