Promotion and Badges (Justin R. Santora)

So I'm not going to lie, Pvt. Santora is a weird guy. Like seriously a weird dude. But thats okay, because I will always take someone who is weird, as long as they show up and try. And I can say that Santora does this and more. He has done an excellent job during his time in my squad at both killing and communicating. Early on in his time in the squad I made the comment after a platoon drill that Pvt. Santora made a huge impact, and while he didn't rack up a ton of kills, he communicated extremely well and was an instrumental part of our successful attack. Further into his time with us his kills did in fact increase and he truly has become a valuable member of the squad and I am very happy to have him. With that being said, I think a some stuff is necessary to represent these words on your jacket. So Pvt. Santora congratulations on receiving your Expert Infantry Badge and Rifle Marksman Badge. Oh and you are PFC Santora now. Congrats!
