One Year and Six Months of Service (Matt R. Newton)
Sgt. Minor said:
Cpl. Newton is one of the finest ASLs I've ever worked with in any leadership position during my long career in the 29th.
He is excellent in training both new recruits and members of the squad in general tactics and skills.
The Corporal also continues to maintain his skills with Combat engineer and has done quite well training our new Combat Enigeer PFC Fry.
The more important aspect is his outstanding ability to lead. He is great under fire and can quickly adapt to changes on the batttlefield.
To put it bluntly, I dont think S2 would be where it is today without Cpl. Newton's abilties and actions.
