I’ve seen a fair few privates come and go in my time. A leader can usually make an accurate prediction on the likelihood of sticking around, future achievements, etc, within a few weeks of a private joining. And, of course, you don’t usually expect to see much before a few months. Well, that was certainly NOT my experience in observing Private Mud. Mud has, unequivocally, shown the most promise of any private I have ever seen at such an early stage. We’re talking the full package here, folks. Mud is a great shot. Can’t deny it. He fits in perfect with our best sharpshooters, acting as an excellent forward screen and communication tool. His determination? Unmatched. Dude guests constantly, attends consistently, and is always up for whatever you offer him. Demeanor? It’s all there, like I said. He’s an absolute joy to have in the squad. He’s got great humor and a personality you don’t get tired of hanging around. So what’s left to do with a private like this? We could just keep stroking his ego, but as much as I think he’d like that, it’s probably better we do away with the whole private nonsense all together. Private, First Class Evan J. Mud has such a nicer sound to it. Great job earning your PFC, Mud, I’m super excited to see where you go from here.
