Promotion and Award (Aiden P. McArdle)
SSgt. Dethfield said:
PFC McArdle's entrance into leadership was a very sudden one. At the time his Squad unexpectedly found itself without an ASL nor any real option on hand and so he stepped up and took on the challenge of both learning how to be leader while occupying a leadership position with no training or significant experience beforehand. McArdle quickly proved that he was the right choice and HQ's leap of faith was justified. He has always been dedicated to both learning and immediately putting those lessons and experiences into practice. His outgoing personality has only strengthened his position as a leader in EP2 and it was only a matter of time before he would complete SLT and solidify his new role. From his excellent performance in SLT to his constant vigilance as an ASL, he has more than earned his Army NCO Professional Development Ribbon and a promotion to Corporal.
