Promotion (Eric J. Curran)
TSgt. Dethfield said:
When EP4 was first open, we gave Sgt. Curran a big task ahead of him. He had to learn to ropes of platoon HQ, learn to his role as a platoon sergeant, and help build a brand new platoon at the same time. Just as he had nearly completed this task, we then shuffled him over to EP2 in an effort to help the platoon prepare for the scrim, which itself was somewhat more complex than the previous scrim Easy Company had just participated in - and he had to do this while getting to know another platoon. It has clearly been a wild four months for Sgt. Curran, but it seems we picked the right person to dump all of this on. He has done everything he can to learn the ropes, adjust to his new role and is a perfect fit for our expectations of platoon sergeant. At this point, I no longer have to worry about him, hold his hand, or look over his shoulder constantly to make sure he isn't doing something silly. At this point, it is time to award him his first rocker. Congratulation, SSgt. Curran. You are a big boy now.
