Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey is shaking up the Army's Best Warrior Competition.

This year's competition will not only take place on a different post, but Dailey promises it will be tougher, more realistic and battle-focused.

Also, for the first time in the event's history, competitors who don't meet basic Army standards will be eliminated from the competition. A soldier who fails the physical fitness test or land navigation will be immediately sent home.

"We have to clearly send the message that this [competition] is for the best of the best of the best," Dailey said.
