Cpl. Akbulut is one of the old guard here in EP4, over 5 years of services and many awards under his belt, so not too many have seen the Cpl. when he was a Pvt. He started his early days of service under the brilliant 2Lt. Runing, at that time was Sgt. in EP1. Where Pvt Akbulut started to develop a taste for the finer things in life. which was picking up the CE AIT. and starting to rain hell on the enemy vehicles, whatever the distance was. you would hear in the comms, I have spotted the Tank, then to have his SL say its 900m away don’t bother with it. then with a strong and confidents replay. I can hit, follow by a puff pow and then a few seconds later a kabooom, Enemy vehicle down,
Then split happened and Akbulut was sent to EP4S1 as CE continuing his passion. But then one day, he was asked if he wanted to have go with SLT, and with classic Akbulut answer, I can try.
Then time went on and Akbulut was sent to EP4S3 as ASL where he did great job and got promoted to Cpl. Then time went on once more and Cpl. Akbulut was now ordered back to EP4S1 as their SL. From there on, has done an amazing job in S1 you only could be proud of as Plt HQ. That’s why this rank, suits him no more. Congratulations Sgt. Akbulut
