Over Pvt. Bird’s 3 months in the unit, it has finally become apparent to me what The Trashmen were singing about in their hit song. Despite insisting he was new to the game, Pvt. Bird has outplayed many of his peers and honestly performed better than I would have ever expected a new private to, even though I have been around for some time. His “spidey senses” are off the charts sometimes, and he has great instinct. I once saw him throw a grenade from the roof a three story building across a two-way road, onto the fenced roof of another building after he took fire, killing his assailant. Simply put, the private simply excels at his job as a rifleman, taking multiple enemies down with him no matter the circumstances, and doing so while in communication with his SL and teammates. I believe these are all qualities of an exceptional PFC, so I am glad to finally see him get his well-earned promotion. Congrats, PFC Bird! Keep it up!
