FORT HOOD, Texas – The 2022 Command Sgt. Maj. Jack L. Clark, Jr. U.S. Army Best Medic Competition will be conducted Jan. 24-28 at Fort Hood, Texas.

This event is a two-Soldier team competition that physically and intellectually challenges the Army’s best medics in a multi-day demanding, continuous, and realistic simulated operational environment.

The Command Sgt. Maj. Jack L. Clark, Jr. Army Best Medic Competition is dedicated to the 13th Command Sergeant Major of the U.S. Army Medical Command. Clark was one of the most respected leaders and noncommissioned officers in the history of the command who understood the important role of medics in the Army and the trust Soldiers and leaders of units in combat must have in the Army Medical Department.
