Promotion and Badges (Joaquin K. Chaparro)
PFC Newton said:
Pvt. Chaparro had a rough start when he first joined EP2S2, his attendance wasn't great and he was a pretty quiet guy. Since then Chaparro collected himself and has steadily become a reliable member of the squad. The first thing I noticed about Chaparro was his skill with a rifle and his combat sense. He's one of those guys that has good situational awareness and just knows what to do. In one of his first drills with us I saw him run up to a building, toss a grenade in the front door, run around the back and breach right after the grenade went off. The insurgent inside didn't stand a chance. Recently Chaparro has also come out of his shell and has become a good asset in communicating targets and working off of the call outs of the rest of the squad seamlessly. Since he has done so well I'm confident in recommending Chaparro for his Rifle Marksman Badge, Expert Infantry Badge, and a promotion to PFC. I'm excited to see what you can do in S2, congratulations PFC Chaparro!
