Promotion and Badges (Joseph E. Gunn)
PFC Newton said:
Pvt. Gunn has been a Pvt. for a hot minute. He's had a rough road with his initial enlistment all the way back in the infancy of Easy Company up until now. Gunn was a solid guy in S2 even back then, but went on ELOA for a while and had to leave us. However, Gunn has returned to EP2S2 and has been a noticed presence ever since his first day back. Gunn has been one of those guys I can send to an objective or on a flank and I don't have to worry about him. I know he'll get where he needs to go, accomplish his mission and kill a few guys along the way. S2 has had a spotty record with returning members, so there was some concern about Gunn coming back to us, but he has shown himself to be a motivated rifleman and an asset to the squad immediately upon his return. I can always trust him to do the right thing and guide his fellow squad members around him when needed. Because Pvt. Gunn has shown so much promise since coming back to us I am happy to recommend him for his Rifle Marksman Badge, Expert Infantry Badge, and a promotion to PFC. Gongratulations PFC Gunn! It's been a long time coming!
