The 2017 Best Sapper Competition is underway at Fort Leonard Wood. Best Sapper competitors took to the water this morning during the squad events portion of the competition. The two-man teams were randomly placed into squads of 10 to carry a 350 pound Zodiac boat to the lake at Fort Leonard Wood’s Training Area 250. After paddling across the lake, squads were required to carry the Zodiacs to the Big Piney River and paddle downstream to their next event. (Photo credit: Stephen Standifird, Public Affairs Office)
