Promotion and Award (Jakob Vonk)
2Lt. Kear said:
Technician, Fifth Grade Vonk has been in SLT and leadership for many months now; his consistent firm, but fair, demeanour coupled with raw tenacity in bettering both himself and his squad at every opportunity make T/5 Vonk a joy to work with in a professional capacity. He has proven himself both capable and competent in his remit as squad leader and I am both proud and fortunate to have him as one of the CP2's squad leaders. This has been a long time coming: T/5 Vonk has now completed all the steps necessary in Charlie's SLT programme and it is an honour to see him earn both his NCO development ribbon and a fitting promotion to the rank of Corporal. Congratulations.
