Promotion and Badges (Varaz Cholanian)

Cpl. Hamilton said:

It wasn’t that long ago that Pvt. Cholanian came to S3 fresh out of BCT. He started off a bit shy and wasn’t always sure what he should be doing but he kept on showing up and found his role in the squad. He’s usually busy keeping the squad alive with the medic kit, but, Cholanian has also gotten very good at positioning himself to callout and mark targets and make some clutch plays and is often one of the last guys alive in the squad. Pvt. Cholanian has come a long way since first joining and the rank of private no longer seems fitting. Congratulations on your EIB, RMB, and promotion to PFC. Keep up the great work PFC Cholanian!
