PFC Barnes is what some might call a recent addition to FP1. It feels like it was just yesterday that we were handing a first AOCC to a somewhat quiet and well behaved PFC in a small squad. In his short tenure though PFC Barnes has managed to accomplish quite a bit. He’s developed into one of FP1S1’s Core Members, a dependable member of the platoon and one of our best guesters. PFC Barnes shows up to Battalion every week rain or shine and at most of our platoon’s drills in general. This good proactive attitude is reflected in his play as a rifleman as well as he is quietly and efficiently turning into someone to watch. In recognition of his good behaviour, great initiative and solid rifle skills we see fit to award PFC Barnes with a Good Conduct Medal!
