Amongst the euros of 2nd Battalion, there has always been one man who has been the rock. The man who, from the beginning, led that group of crazy folks from across the pond since the very foundation of the 29th foray into the game of Squad. It hasn’t always been a smooth ride, with the various cultures regularly clashing but it’s safe to say that TSgt. Bagge has been the one man who has had the strength of will to keep everyone in line. His Finnish blood has fueled his drive to push his platoons to their limit. His Finnish anger is always letting loose when someone needs a nice, little correction. His Finnish humor is non-existent so as to not get in the way and distract him.
For over a year now, TSgt. Bagge has helped lead Easy Company as a whole through thick and thin, learned the ropes of the broader purview of company headquarters, and has done so with absolute distinction. Whether in a tank or in a debrief, you can always count on him to lend his expertise to whoever needs it. Therefore he is being promoted to the rank of Master Sergeant.
