In his time here, PFC Velarde-Vernuil has built a name for himself and developed a reputation for being one of the deadliest combat engineers and rifleman in EP3 and 2nd Battalion. He’s also become one of the “core members” of EP3S3, not just for his skills, but also because of his reliability and the morale boost his presence brings to the squad. It’s pretty crazy to think he’s already been here nearly as long as I have, but it’s been a pleasure at first fighting against and then alongside him these past three years. Congratulations on your 6th AoCC PFC VV!
