Promotion and Award (Thomas Kardell)
2Lt. Barclay said:
PFC Kardell has been there when EP1 has needed him. When S2 was in need of a new ASL, he was willing to transfer over from S1 to fill the need. Leaving your squad is one of the hardest things one can do, but add in the fact that you will be taking on a roll of leadership adds to the pressure. He continued to work through his SLT progress and grow as a leader and has now stepped up to take the SL role as he neared completion of SLT. Now that he has completed his final task leadership is pleased present him with his NCO Professional Development Ribbon and a Promotion to Corporal. Congratulation Cpl. Kardell.
