Promotion and Award (Darren A. Barquest)

Sgt. Dawdy said:

PFC Barquest has held the mantle of leader far longer than most people realize. With his initial introduction being under Cpl. Kent, then at-the-time Sgt. Lord, until finally he became Harambe’s Own assistant squad leader. Throughout these tenures he has witnessed several experienced squad HQ tackle the theory of leadership through their own style of leadership. Through his own observation and self-recognition he established his own strong personality that complimented his style of leadership. Outside of drills, I’m thankful to have PFC Barquest assist me in both squad management and administrative work. Through all of his efforts, he has distinguished himself to be a capable and reliable member of leadership. With all of this under the lime-light, the rank of Private, First Class is no longer befitting of such member of leadership. Therefore, congratulations Corporal Barquest! I look forward to seeing your career further.
