The Army has chosen its Soldier of the Year and he's from right here at Hunter Army Airfield.

Spc. Heyz Seeker is with the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. He won the Army's top honors last week, beating out 25 other soldiers in Ft. Lee, Virginia.

Seeker said three deployments to Afghanistan and one to Iraq helped prepare him. He hopes to eventually become the Army's first Filipino Sergeant Major of the Army.
