Fort Sill announces Drill Sergeant of the Year

FORT SILL, Okla._The winner of Fort Sill's Drill Sergeant of the Year award was honored at a special ceremony on post.

Staff Sergeant Sophia Burdulinski beat out five other sergeants, who were chosen by their units to compete in 65 tasks, ranging from target shooting to rappelling. Staff Sergeant Burdulinski says she's excited about the accomplishment.

"I feel I grow more as an individual. Apply knowledge and it helps, do more for my career," said Burdulinski.

Burdulinski is a newlywed and says she has yet to tell her husband the news. He is stationed in Korea and she says, when he wakes up, she'll give him a call.

Burdulinski now advances to a national competition in September in South Carolina.
