Wow this guy has really impressed me! After coming back from some time off Pvt. Lav has hit the ground running. He had amazed me with his improved skill base over the last few months and his willingness to learn and improve that skill by attending as much as he could. He has literally been thrown in head first into DBOTS 2022 and so far he is swimming like an Olympian! I cannot stress how much this guy has been dedicated to helping us succeed and how he has made a crucial difference on more than one occasion! He has proven himself as a deadly rifleman many times and this was forged into legend when he along with another PFC were able to win us a victory in an very difficult DBOTS Match! His contribution to the morale of S1 has been welcomed and he is able to work with each member of the squad with ease. This is why I am proud to award this Private with his Expert infantry Badge, His Rifle Marksman Badge and finally it brings me great pride to award him the promotion to PFC! Congratulations PFC Lav its been a rough road but you have proven you can stick it out! Keep aiming high and shooting straight!
