I have had the major pleasure of working with Captain Fritz for almost all of his 29th career. He quickly distinguished himself as a major asset to his squad and platoon, and I knew that it was only a matter of time before his distinguished career would lead him to a major role in his Company. In a mere two and a half years, he rose to the position of Commanding Officer of Able Company and played a major role in its success throughout the years. Through his professionalism, unfaltering will, and major contributions to the unit, he has created a legacy that will last long after he leaves the unit (should he ever manage to escape). His dedication to his position at the helm of Easy has led our unit to the recent major development of Regimental expansion, and so it is only fitting that as he oversees both Easy and Fox Company he bears a rank that befits his major contributions to the unit. Major.
Congratulations on your promotion, Major Fritz. Lead Second Battalion well.
