A local Illinois National Guard soldier got the chance to compete in a best warrior competition.

Specialist Jacob Bultmann of Peoria competed for the first time in the Regional IV Best Warrior competition in Minnesota.

He competed against 15 other soldiers, testing their physical and mental strength as all-around soldiers.

Bullman didn't win the regional competition, but says he was happy to have the opportunity to compete.
