Christopher Bierbower, of Kane, Pa., and Sgt. 1st Class Steven Jones, of Bradford, Pa., on being selected to represent 1st Battalion, 112th Infantry in the annual Lt. Gen. Milton G. Baker Non-commissioned Officer Leadership Competition. Jones won the non-commissioned officer of the year award, Burke won soldier of the year and Bierbower received the Milton G. Baker Award at the battalion level. They will all now compete in January at the brigade level. The Pennsylvania Army National Guard state competition works similar to Soldier of the Year boards.
