Military Police Officer, SGT Lori Singer-Henderson is one of Fort Hood's finest.
She's the installation's non commissioned officer of the year, and she has the success of her entire unit on her radar.
Sgt Singer keeps a watchful eye on the streets of Fort Hood, and throughout all her accomplishments this year, she's kept her comrades in mind.
Earlier this month, she represented Fort Hood at III Corps' Best Soldier Competition, competing against the top soldiers from four other installations.
Now she's taking everything she learned back to her unit.
"I'm really big on soldiers and NCO's just educating themselves, because it's something that nobody can ever take away from you, and each time you compete, you gain more knowledge that will better yourself and everyone around you," said SGT Singer.
It all started when she became NCO of the quarter for the 89th MP BDE.
178th MP Detachment Commander, CAPT Robert Tarr said, "That was the stepping stone for her to go to the garrison to do that next step, becoming the garrison NCO of the quarter."
She's been named the best of the best at Ft Hood, when tested in areas like knowledge, marksmanship, and fitness.
"SGT Singer is definitely the model NCO that every commander wants, somebody the soldiers in the detachment can look up to and ask for guidance," said CAPT Tarr.
And as others look to her, she's already fixed her sights on becoming even better for the next competition.
"I do plan on competing again for next year and work on maybe going to a few Army schools, and hopefully become a drill sergeant as well," she said.
Also down the road for SGT Singer, next month she will be inducted into the prestigious Sergeant Audie Murphy Club for her outstanding leadership.
