Promotion and Badge (Diego Suárez)
Cpl. Knezevic said:
During the first time Pvt. Suárez enlisted, he did not leave much of an impression to the squad, yet alone DP1, mainly because he left after a short time. That all changed when he came back couple of months ago, and his squad mates, me included, can not be more happier to have such a man within their ranks. Being a communicative member, Pvt. Suarez never had any problems giving out accurate callouts, finding good positions, moving when necessary, and always being up to the task when it was necessary, no matter how difficult the task was, but always staying disciplined, never talking more than he must. Even more, when leadership and SLT candidates of S1 fell in combat, he himself usually took the initiative himself, to the point of giving orders when there was no one willing to. Being already a guy up to the task, it came natural to him that he is a excellent rifleman on top of that, always reliable to those around him, without being watched upon as just another private who might do mistake which will endanger all of those around him. Playing a lot outside of the drills, he is getting better and better in every single regard as every day passes, and at this stage, not just Squad and Platoon HQ, but all those in DP1 see him fit to become promoted. Congratulations on your Rifleman Marksmanship Badge, Elite Infantry Badge, and most importantly, your promotion to the rank of Private, First Class. Well done Private, First Class Suárez!
