Pvt. Hope has been with the squad for about half a year now, and has made a great addition to said squad since joining. A skilled rifleman with a sense of humor, Hope is a defining member of our squad and over the past 7 months and more recently has proved he is dependable when it comes to activity, morale, and attendance. Great job on the work so far, Pvt. Hope, and congratulations on your Rifle Marksman badge. This grants a huge step toward the rank of PFC, and hopefully (no pun intended) we’ll see you at that rank shortly.
