North Powder soldier honored


Army Staff Sgt. Kevin A. Hopson, a North Powder native and 2005 graduate of Powder Valley High School, has been named by the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC) as its Noncommissioned Officer of the Year and winner of one of the AMC's "Best Warrior" awards.

Hopson, who enlisted in the Army after graduation and has been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, will now compete in the Army-wide Best Warrior competition in October.

The AMC Best Warrior competition included 11 events that tested a variety of military skills and knowledge in a high-pressure atmosphere. A total of eight competitors -- three Soldiers and five NCOs -- competed for AMC’s Best Warrior titles and earned points based on their performance in specific events.

Out of a perfect score of 500 points, Hopson topped all competitors with 339 points.

He serves as the Force Protection NCA at the Rock Island Arsenal in Illinois.
