Promotion and Award (Patrick H. Tilley)
Cpl. Nguyen said:
Hmm, where do I start? PFC Tilley has been my brother in arms since the very beginning. His journey through SLT has been lengthy but he is always on top of his game with helping me run a big squad smoothly. He is responsible for the presence of half of our squad and his irresistible enthusiasm kept them showing up to drills. Tilley cares for each and every member of the squad and he is always there when anyone needs him. Indeed, his amiability is one of the reasons that this squad feels like a second family to everyone in it. For succeeding in demonstrating all the characteristics of a true leader, and for being able to complete the rare feat of writing a doctrine that is not boring, PFC Tilley is hereby welcomed with open arms into the NCO club. Congratulations Cpl. Tilley, but remember to watch your back because there can only be one Cpl. in this squad
