Well, well, well… here we are. Sgt. Minor Is one of those corner stones of Easy and i would say all of the 29th. Damn, i mean he has been here since before Man started to make tools out of bronze. Some say that he has always been here in the background, never aging and sucking the life force out of failed privates. All Jokes aside, Sgt. Minor is someone a new member should strive to be like. When you join this unit there is a time in everyone’s career that you start to stagnate and just continue to roll with the punches. It is a great leader that can take that stagnation and look inward and start to ask ‘why am i still where i am and how can i improve’. Sgt. Minor has come a long way since I have known him, from a kinda timid Corporal not really standing out from the crowd, to a Sergeant that was my first pick to replace me and take the reigns of EP2. Sgt. Minor is truly a success story. Enough of this waffling and i will get to why we are here. Seargent, it is time to get the recognition you deserve and a rank to go with your age and a rocker to sit on! Congrats my friend look how far you have come.
