Promotion and Badges (V. Ivanov)

Sgt. J. Wright said:

When Pvt. V. Ivanov first rolled into BCT, I instantly disliked him because I knew two things. He was PFC Dimitrov’s Friend and his name is hard to pronounce. After a few months of him being in S1, he has shown me that he is PFC material. His great kill count at the end of the game, great use of nades and his communication that ends with a shy giggle has been really impressive. Though even with his great attitude and skills, I still dislike him due to the two reasons above. But unfortunately for me, I can’t keep him as a Private because it no longer suits him. Congratulations PFC.

It’s about time, brother. Congratulations to you!

The privates grow up so fast, sniff. One day young, cute things messing up cords. The next lean and mean fighting machines taking point towards the next point of enemy contact. Congratulations PFC! Well done, well deserved!

Congratulations PFC, keep it up!
