Promotion and Badges (Jake W. Bandel)
Cpl. Tilley said:
Pvt. Bandel is a very reliable member of S2. Being the senior private, he fills a very important role within the squad: getting down and dirty with nothing more than his rifle, bayonet, sidearm, and grenades. Pvt. Bandel knows that there is merit in being an outstanding rifleman, for it shows that he doesn't need some fancy AIT to secure victory. I only write this quote with one regret, and that is that DP2S2 is losing such an outstanding Pvt. However, this issue is enormously overshadowed by the fact that DP2S2 is getting a brand new PFC! Congratulations PFC Bandel, you're one step further into your 29th journey.
