Sergeant Christian D. Robles
From the moment AP3 was informed of it's deployment, Sgt. Robles hit the ground running with the planning and preparation. Over the course of the five weeks of scrim preparation, he compiled numerous visual aids ranging from maps and plans to in-game visuals of positions and lines of sight for riflemen. The countless hours of picture taking, and editing contributed massively to the operational readiness of not only his squad, but of all of AP3. Without the diligent preparation from Sgt. Robles, there is no doubt that the readiness level of AP3 would have been severally impacted for the worse, the Sgt. is therefore being awarded the Soldiers medal for his preparations. Sergeant Christian D. Robles has also participated in his first official scrimmage and is therefore eligible to receive his first Combat Infantry Badge and for being a part of a two round scrimmage in which both rounds were a victory he shall also receive a WWII Victory Medal.

Technician, 5th Grade Collin R. Kelso
The number of in-game screenshots of positions taken and posted by T/5 Kelso in preparation for AP3's deployment is innumerable. For countless hours, over the weeks of preparation he scoured the map in search of tricky spots, and areas for members of not only his squad but the entire platoon on both attack and defense. On top of the pictures he compiled maps of the attack and defense plans as laid out by HQ, which were used to fill the reserves, who did not attend all the scrim prep, in and bring them up to speed on AP3's strategy. While AP3 may not have lost without T/5 Kelso, surely our victory would have been much less impressive without the level of dedication he showed in aiding in the preparation of the entire platoon, the T/5 is therefore being awarded the Soldiers medal for his preparations. Technician, 5th Grade Collin R. Kelso has also participated in his first official scrimmage and is therefore eligible to receive his first Combat Infantry Badge.

WWII Victory Medal

Private, First Class Ashraf Berus
During AP3's assault on Barashka, PFC Berus along with the rest of AP3S1 positioned himself in the center trenches along northern river bank. His position gave him a clear line of sight across the enemy from the start of the round. As live was called, PFC Berus opened the round within seconds by eliminating the enemy teams commanding officer. With their weakened command structure, PFC Berus began his work in earnest. From his position in his trench, and with the help of accuarte callouts from his squad mates, PFC Berus continued to spot and eliminate high value targets, enemy AIT holders, and NCOs. From the North side of the river, PFC Berus nearly singlehandedly opened up the center portion of the map, effectively allowing AP3S1's late round push through the center. While PFC Berus was not among the living at the end of the round, it was not due to a mistake on his part that lead to his death but an untimely loss of connection to the server. By the end of the round he had claimed six kills with his rifle, and had his internet not let him down, there is little doubt that he would've claimed many more kills in the round, the PFC is therefore being awarded the bronze star for his effort. In addition the PFC Berus has participated in his first official scrimmage and is therefore eligible to receive his first Combat Infantry Badge. In addition, for being a part of a two round scrimmage in which both rounds were a victory he shall also receive a WWII Victory Medal.

Private, First Class Ludio G. Filho
On the defense round of AP3's deployment, PFC Filho manned our T-34 Medium Tank. For the early portion of the round, PFC Filho was deployed at the rear of the map where he could shift between flanks to support whichever squad needed the extra firepower of his high explosive shells. As the German attack began, pressure was applied to the Western flank, where numerous enemy infantry were spotted as well as the enemy Panzer IV. Taking quick action PFC Filho deployed his tank to the center of the Delta objective, using the buildings to conceal himself and effectively giving him a clear line of sight toward the Bravo peninsula. Moments passed as the enemy tank and infantry pushed foward into sight, PFC Filho wasted no time loading armor piercing rounds, and opening fire on the enemy Panzer IV. With two well placed shots to the flank of the enemy tank, PFC Filho eliminated the Panzer IV, and loaded HE. He began shelling the trenches, and buildings that provided cover for the enemy infantry around the peninsula which grinded the enemy infantry to a halt, and thus providing easy targets for AP3's riflemen who quickly mopped them up with well placed shots. As the attack in the west dissipated, enemy infantry began threatening the Eastern flank. PFC Filho, once more shifted his position across the map to provide high explosive support for the defenders in the East. He found himself set up across the railroad tracks, and with his shelling and machine gun fire being directed by his spotter, was able to elminated two more attackers including the enemy team leader. Thanks to PFC Filho's quick action, and well placed shelling AP3 was able to slow and stop the German advance across the map, and maintain our hold on the town of Barashka, for his efforts in the battle the PFC is being awarded the Army Commendation Medal. In addition PFC Filho has participated in his second official scrimmage and is therefore eligible to receive his WWII Victory Medal for being a part of a two round scrimmage in which both rounds were a victory.

Private, First Class Alexander R. Lundberg
PFC Lundberg was stationed on the Western portion of the map with the rest of his squad. In keeping with AP3's strategy, PFC Lundberg support his squad's approach with his rifle from behind the Western bunker complex. As his squad moved and secured the Bravo peninsula, PFC Lundberg spotted and eliminated an enemy rifleman who had been threatening the advance of his squad. Matching his squad's aggressive approach across the river, PFC Lundberg moved up and found himself toward the front of his squad when enemy fire came from the East, and South of his squad. The enemy fire slowed his squad's attack, and inflicted a casualty on his assistant squad leader, however PFC Lundberg continued to move forward toward the enemy bunker, taking the position and using the high ground to spot the enemy targets that were putting fire on the squad. PFC Lundberg quickly and efficiently dispatched all three enemy targets that were threatening S3's advance in the west, effectively securing the flank for his squad and no doubt preventing numerous casualties, the PFC is therefore being awarded the bronze star for his effort.

Private, First Class Don Roast
During the attack round, PFC Roast remained with PFC Filho using his binoculars to direct shelling and machine gun fire. At the start of the round, PFC Roast, realizing the tank was unable to shell from it's starting location, instead directed rifle and machine gun fire from his squad, spotting enemy high value targets such as AIT holders, NCOs and even officers moving throughout the center trench line. With accurate callouts of enemy positions, his squad's riflemen went to work clearing out the center of the map. As the round continued and AP3's advance began in earnest, PFC Roast escorted AP3's tank to the front, and used his binoculars to call out enemy targets, and direct our T-34's high explosive rounds and machine gun fire. PFC Roast's contributions to the attack round lead to a significant number of enemies killed through his clear and concise call outs to his squad and to his tanker, which had an obvious positive effect on the results of AP3's assault on Barashka, therefore the PFC is being awarded the Army Commendation Medal. In addition PFC Roast has participated in his first official scrimmage and is therefore eligible to receive his first Combat Infantry Badge. In addition, for being a part of a two round scrimmage in which both rounds were a victory he shall also receive a WWII Victory Medal.
