Private, First Class Ludio G. de Freitas has been in the unit for a long time, almost five years in fact. In this time he has learned a lot about the 29th and how it operates. He participated in Rising Storm and Squad before eventually stopping in Rising Storm 2 where he currently resides. When in Squad, back when it was only Easy Company, PFC Freitas took a gander at Squad Leadership Training and was quite good at it. He nearly completed SLT but had to leave the unit. Now back for this third enlistment PFC Freitas wanted to finish what he started, he wanted to be a leader. PFC Freitas went back into SLT and has been doing great work ever since. PFC Freitas holds himself to the standards of an NCO, without the privileges. He is active both in and out of drills, he takes over leading when his leadership dies, and often volunteers to lead. PFC Freitas has completed all tasks within SLT and has proved himself to be a leader. With this, he will be awarded his Army NCO Professional Development Ribbon. Congratulations, PFC Freitas. But this is not all PFC Freitas is getting. PFC Freitas holds himself to the standards of an NCO and has for a long time. He puts more effort than was ever expected of him, and this has been noticed. With this, the rank of PFC is no longer fitting. Congratulations, Technician, 5th Grade Freitas.
