Promotion and Badges (James Bale)

Sgt. Bukey said:

Private Bale joined the squad at a fun time. For the first time in what felt like forever, we had multiple privates. These guys were running around all fresh and new, dying for the cause with great enthusiasm. However, it didn’t take long for Bale to stick out. Surprisingly for a new private, he was often the last one to die for the cause. He did strange things like surviving rounds and even communicating at all levels when he was one of the few remaining on the team. Any time a private is alive and working to ensure victory at the end of the round, you know great things are ahead of them. It’s been a pleasure to have Pvt. Bale in our new, young core, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for him. Congratulations!
