Promotion and Badges (Brian J. Russell)

Sgt. Garrett said:

Pvt. Russell was one of those guys that the squad wasn’t sure about when he joined. He was pretty quiet at first, and the squad will usually chew up and spit out members like that with their odd sense of humor and inside jokes. However, Pvt. Russell stuck around and he’s genuinely been trying his best ever since. He can constantly be seen guesting other drills, and he’s always looking at his own in-game performance and seeking out opportunities to get better. All of this has, obviously, not gone unnoticed and I’ve really seen the Pvt. excel in the past few weeks. He’s been nailing the callouts in drills, tossing perfect grenades, and clearing buildings like a champ. To me, this perfectly describes a model PFC, and I’m excited to see him receive his promotion, EIB, and RMB for his hard work. You’ve really earned it, PFC Russell, congratulations!
