Promotion (Grant P. Gillespie)
2Lt. Willis said
PFC Gillespie has had a long and storied career in the 29th over his 4 years. Since PFC Gillespie joined us in Easy Company, his efforts towards the Crewman AIT helped shape the position to what it is today. However, it is not PFC Gillespie's Crewman abilities that we recognize today, it is his efforts as a member of Platoon HQ and his clerk abilities. Since PFC Gillespie took over as Platoon clerk, EP2 has seen its fair share of changes. Having learned from an excellent clerk in Corporal Garrett, PFC Gillespie has taken the reigns and continued the quality and expectations of the position. A good clerk is a valued asset for any Platoon or Company. For his efforts, I am proud to promote PFC Gillespie to the rank of Technician, 5th Grade.
