Promotion and Badge (Markus F. Holtz)

Cpl. Voth said:

Pvt. Holtz was one of the bright new faces to DP3S2 when I took over the squad two short months ago. During that time, Pvt. Holtz’s attendance was trending in the wrong direction and it was my second or third drill as squad leader before I actually got to meet and speak with him. After a quick coaching about getting his attendance back up, Pvt. Holtz has been an exemplary member of the 29th in general and of DP3S2 in particular. Early to drills, active participation, eager guester, and communicative before, during, and after drills; Pvt. Holtz has turned himself around to be the exact kind of member I dream for in the 29th and as a squad leader. Having put in the time and effort, I believe he has more than earned his EIB and promotion to PFC. Congratulations, PFC Holtz, I look forward to seeing your continued career in the 29th!
