PFC Patterson has been a core part of DP3S1 for some time now and by extension has been a core part of DP3. I remember when PFC Patterson first joined the unit. He was unsure of what his future would be here in the unit and what to make of the 29th as a whole, but in no time at all he firmly planted his feet and made a name for himself. He first took on the rains oh becoming a crewman, and when that didn’t satisfy him he asked to go into SLT. Unsure of how a quiet and reserved would be. I decided to give him a shot, and I am quite thankful that I did. In his time in SLT PFC Patterson his constantly met the goals an aspersions that both Platoon and Squad leadership were looking for. Whenever he was told how he could improve he took it in stride, never letting it get to him, and always looking to improve not only himself but his squad and platoon. He is always trying to come up with new drill Ideas to try. They may not all work out, but the effort he puts in is there. With all this I feel it is only proper that that you are awarded your SLT Ribbon and Promotion to T/5 congratulations T/5 Patterson.
