AWESOMAZING!

IIRC, he did well last year too.
Have him spend a few sessions with me and he’ll show up at his unit sporting a distinguished pistol and presidents 100 on his ASU, further bucking the trend. Guaranteed to elicit what-the-hell-sir looks from joes, NCOs and fellow O’s

He's off at a rifle leg match this weekend. He's got a full summer ahead -- the LANTFLEET and All-Navy East, Summer Camp, and CTLT.
