Staff Sgt. Nicolas Escandon, 515th Regiment (Regional Training Institute)


[Staff Sgt. Escandon won the New Mexico National Guard Best Warrior Competition as the NCO of the Year]

What did you do to prepare for the Best Warrior Competition?
I’ve been going through a lot of physical training with Soldiers from the RTI.
How do think you performed during the competition?
I think I did well.

Do you have any hobbies?
Right now I’m going to school so there isn’t much free time. I play soccer a lot. I really enjoy playing soccer and watching soccer. I also like to read. I like to read about science and different cultures.

What would you recommend for future competitors?
Prepare with a special emphasis on the academics.
