Promotion and Badge (Ivan D. Buravkov)

Cpl. Martin said:

There is no doubt that PFC Buravkov has more than proven himself as a deadly shot in some of the most difficult positions. I must commend him on his improvement within the supportive dynamics of the squad in regard to his sniper role. He has become more vocal in his communication and his relaying of enemy positions to the squad. It is clear it has enabled him to really support S1 in big open range combat as well as urban environments. He has really stood out in many Platoon and Company drills often being the dread of any unfortunate soldier who strays into his sights! He has been a good team player, I am so pleased with the way he has overcome many challenges that faced him previously with regards to ranging and getting a shot on live. This is now a very impressive and deadly marksman which is why I am more than proud to see him awarded his Sniper Marksmen Badge, and subsequent promotion to T/5! It has been a long journey, but well-deserved. Congratulations, T/5 Buravkov, keep aiming straight and picking them off from afar!
