It was a great day for five of the 40th's finest soldiers. First up were those being promoted PV2 Steel, PFC Smith, Drew, and PFC Cosgrove. Promotions are always exciting and highly anticipated ventures of those in the military and today the three of them took one more step on their careers. PV2 Steel was promoted to PFC and PFC Smith, Drew and PFC Cosgrove, Patrick were promoted to Specialist! These soldiers of A Company's 2nd Platoon are now expected to take on more responsibility, being accountable for their actions, and are expected to continue working towards becoming a leader.
This day also saw the awarding of the Army Achievement Medal for PFC Uzzle and PFC Gonzales for their completion of the Army Structured Self Development courses. This is the first step towards being eligible to attend Warrior Leaders Course. These soldiers are showing that they are ready for anything the Army has to put in front of them.
