Two Years and Six Months of Service (Richard T. Vu)

Cpl. Knife said:

“It is the rifle that ultimately takes ground, and it is rifle fire that holds it after it’s taken, by throwing back enemy counter-attack. The man with the rifle is the man who wins wars; and accurate rifle fire from individual riflemen is the most effective factor on any battlefield.”
–USMC Raider and Brigadier General Merritt Edson
PFC R. Vu has shown immense courage and skill in the face of the enemy, he has done so for 2 years and 6 months already and we look forward to his next 2 years and 6 months. PFC Vu’s marksmanship has only improved in this time and so he is now a Platoon sniper, responsible for some of the most vaunted and difficult tasks possible, providing accurate rifle fire. Congratulations on this achievement, we are all proud of your accomplishment and anticipate more to come.


So proud of my Sailor. Congratulations Vu!
