Promotion and Badge (Wiktor A. Traciak)
Sgt. Christiansen said:
Pvt. Traciak's been with us for a little over 3 months. In that time, he has proven himself to be an excellent rifleman, knowing how to shoot and when to shoot.
On several occasions Pvt. Traciak has been one of the last members alive on his team, managing to pull off a win where others might falter. Sometimes that's luck, though more often, he's simply a little quicker on the trigger; a little more accurate on the first shot; a little more concentrated on his prey. The best way to avoid being on the business end of his skilled shooting, is to not be seen by him at all. If he sees you, he'll probably hit you.
On top of that, he has proven himself reliable in any engagement, communicating clearly and working excellently with his squad. He has progressed superbly since his enlistment back in October of 2018, and his demeanor is exactly what we like seeing.
For having proven that you know how to handle your rifle, and for having proven yourself as a member of the 29th, I am happy to promote you to the rank of Private, First Class and award you your Rifle Marksman Arms Qualification Badge. Keep it up, PFC!
