Promotion and Badges (Tiawan Eden)

Cpl. Kon said:

For the last 2 months I have kept looking at our squad’s roster and seeing down at the bottom “Pvt. Eden” and thinking “He must be at 3 months by now right?” Well much to my surprise quite a few times he was only at a month and a half or two months. Every time it left me wondering why does it feel like he should already be at 3 months? Well despite his quiet nature Pvt. Eden has done a lot for not only our squad but the unit. He was only in the group for less then 3 weeks when he stepped up and took an ADI position which helped T/5 Gillespie tremendously. Though he does not talk much during drills when you do hear his voice it is providing clear and concise callouts and when you don’t hear him it is because he is sneaking up on you to give you a surprise healing with the trustee medic class. Personally I think the last time I looked this much forward to a promotion was when I was receiving PFC myself. I can’t wait to see where Eden goes in the future with our squad. Congrats Eden!
