Promotion (Eric J. Curran)

BACK IN ABLE EASY COMPANY, during the early days when everyone was still building their skills in preparation for that days that we would step outside and finally take on any fight we could find, I recall a young whipper-snapper named Cpl. Curran. He was a harsh, discount version of Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann that everyone both respected and feared to some degree. He quickly became known for training his squad hard… very hard. The day he chose make his squad attack a defending team with less numbers was the day we realized he was one to take very seriously.

He hasn’t changed much since then, except for the fact that he doesn’t quite hammer his subordinates so hard these days, much to my slight disappointment. Instead, he has worked on developing the leadership below him while working on his own skills regarding senior leadership, paperwork, and company management. He has worked on it diligently over the last two years and he now decided that deserves a diamond on his jacket. Therefore, I am being strong-armed into promoting him to First Sergeant.
