“Private Baerentzen was the only guy in his training platoon back in BCT, but despite that, I vividly remember us being able to best the ADIs. And he continued showing us this impressive ingame skill on many occasions. One example that comes to mind is a platoon drill in which he got seven kills in a single round on his own, separated from us, fighting as the last man standing, holding onto his position valiantly. He also likes to play MWII with us, where his high skill makes his lobbies a pain for me. The 2Lt himself took to call him BenTen because he is such a versatile player that one could believe that he can transform himself like the character from TV. So congratulations to you, PFC Benten, and onwards to a great career in the 29th ID.”
