Promotion (Matt R. Newton)

Throughout Easy Company's life, it has seen a lot of returning members fill its ranks. A lot of these individuals, unfortunately, don't make much of an impact and leave right away. Others, however, make an impact so large that their name is easily recognized within the company; Cpl. Newton is one of these individuals. Looking back, I remember seeing that he was a GD'd member and thinking that he would be a repeat offender. This never happened and he ended up getting into leadership. My next thought was that he would fail to meet our expectations when it came to leadership under Easy Company's standards. I was actually correct here...mostly because he has gone far above what is expected of anyone in the unit. This man, he really is something. He has such an NCO attitude when it comes to everything and is fun to discuss certain topics with. Cpl. Newton is the reason as to why Easy Company recently had two scrims back to back. He worked extremely hard to get the others units to work with our rules and show up to scrims; we can all thank him for this. He is also one of the people that have brought pub scrims to Easy Company recently as well. He is an invaluable asset to EP4, LH, Easy Company, and the 29th as a whole. For these reasons, HQ and I believe he is ready for Sergeant. Good job Sergeant Newton; keep on the great work!
