If the 29th gave out awards for most improved player of year, PFC Shaffer would be my immediate nomination. Since he joined S1 just over a year ago he has taken great strides to get where he is now. From humble beginnings watching him hide prone behind a building not moving, to seeing him clutch victory from defeat as the last alive during drills. Time and again PFC Shaffer shows his ability to learn from past play and apply those experiences to future drills. It has been great having him part of S1 and I look forward to his continued success. Congratulations PFC on earning your fourth AoCC and WW1 Victory badge! Keep it up Shaff!
