Promotion (Matthew J. Brenholen)
Sgt. Bruneau said:
I have known Corporal Brenholen for two years now and in that time, I have had the pleasure of being a fellow rifleman in a squad with him as well as having him as my ASL as a freshly minted squad leader. I was able to enjoy the sweet taste of victory in an official scrimmage with him and I was finally able to pass the torch to him and let him run his own squad shortly after that victory. Me and Bren have been reaping the rewards of a fruitful relationship between two NCO’s and its finally time for him to be recognized for all the hard work and dedication he has been pouring into dog company, Whether it be in recruiting new lifeblood for the 29th or guesting other platoons and squads drill he is constantly helping to make Dog company the best that it can possibly be. It has become time for Brenholen to wear a different rank, one that shows his dedication and tenacity. Congratulation Sergeant Brenholen!
