Thank you very much, I didn't do any of this to get recognized. Everything I did and will continue to do will be for the best of the unit. But as your SNCO, I will remain to try and do what I can for you guys below me.
As the senior enlisted I will strive to make sure you guys are having a good time within the unit still. I hope that soon all of you will take my job and we can issue one of these Medals and others to every single one of you. I will strive to do everything in my power to get you guys there. I have shown just one example of what it takes. Can you show us what you have?
But remember this nothing will be given freely, You have to show everyone that you deserve it. No one's rank is safe. You can be moved up. and you can be moved down. If the unit as a whole feels that Captain Humphreys or myself are failing you guys as leaders, Please let us know, I personally would be happy to step aside.
I'm sorry I turned this into a long speech, but honestly guys thank you for everything, I appreciate being noticed, but if I was a Pvt or Pfc still, I would still try and do the same job.
