PFC Dixson has been an amazing submachine gunner for so long it is almost impossible to know where to begin. He has achieved the point in his career and skill development that everyone in DP3, and likely Dog Company as a whole, recognizes his abilities. PFC Dixson was able to hone his skill as a “Light”, by dedicating himself fully to his squad, his platoon, Dog Company, and the 29th ID. This commitment is evident by high attendance and frequency of guesting, and the seriousness in which PFC Dixson treats his AIT has resulted in combat proficiency that can only be acquired through practice and discipline. PFC Dixson can utilize submachine guns, shotguns, and other close quarters weapons and equipment like smoke grenades, to capture any point, and lead any assault. PFC Dixson has been witnessed on several occasions to take on several enemies at once as the last man standing, and eliminate them all, winning the round for his team. PFC Dixson’s reputation in the 29th ID can really speak for itself on this matter, and with such consistent and impressive performance, it is appropriate at this time for PFC Dixson to be recommended for his Submachine Gun Sharpshooter Badge.
