A true Hustler, PFC Nielsen fits neatly into the attitude and tradition of 1-3, a squad he stepped up to lead as an SLT Candidate. A proven leader both on and off the field, the PFC is active in the unit far beyond his duties as a squad leader. Whether hustling up recruits for Charlie or leading the squad to victory in Friday Night Fights, PFC Nielsen can be counted on to get the job done. Having passed the SLT scrim, we are pleased to promote him to Corporal. Congratulations and Ever Forward!
