Promotion and Badges (Joseph D. Brophy)
PFC Lord said:
Pvt. Brophy is a comical and jovial member of my squad who always knows how to get me to crack a smile or chuckle. I would not trade him for anybody else. I trust this private to pick up kills and be there when I need him, particularly if I need him to do some flying. He is a stand-up soldier that has no problem doing anything that is asked of him and more, all with a smile on his face. He does as much for the squad morale as he does for his team in combat. As such he has become fundamental to the cohesion and teamwork that my squad displays. He so important that I think his rank ought to reflect that, and, as such, I think it is time he joins the rest of the PFC’s in my squad. Keep up the excellent work, PFC Brophy.
