Promotion and Badges (Josh R. Mckinlay)

Cpl Dimitrov said:

I first met him in BCT, so I did. Fortunately enough for him, Sgt. J. Wright was still the DI so because of that, he was doing amazing and even aced the test in the end. During his BCT sessions, he was always trying to remember so he can become a great 29th member in the near future. Frankly enough, he was put under the elevated one, also known as Cpl. Hatfield. He has already suffered enough for the past 3 months by being in this squad. Regardless, this did not stop him from being a great squad member. He’s a great rifleman and working great with the squad. Apart from that, he has proven himself well enough to be given his Expert Infantry Badge, Rifle Marksman Badge, and most importantly, promotion to Private First Class. Mckinlay, may the suffering continue!
