Maintenance Support Team (MST) NCO
SGT XXX was instrumental to the redeployment of both Assassin Battery and the Battalion as wrecker recovery support Tank Commander (TC).

Over the course of three days, SGT XXX and SPC XXX drove over 500 miles to accomplish the Battalion's endstate of recovering all vehicles prior to completion of OPN XXX.

SPC XXX has maintained 100% accountability of over $500,000.00 worth of equipment with zero loss or damage. His tenacity to ensure all accompanying equipment was mission capable contributed greatly to the overall success of 12 missions and fostered an environment of accountability. A true technical expert and professional, SPC XXX leads by example and expects the same level of work ethic from his peers. SPC XXX is one of the most reliable and skilled maintenance professionals.
SPC XXX takes great pride in the mission readiness of his M984A4 Wrecker, FSC824. SPC XXX is resourceful and coordinated and sought out additional resources from external agencies in order to complete repairs and operate within commander's intent. SPC XXX's efforts are incredibly rare for someone not just as an E-4 but as a junior leader. For the past six months, SPC XXX has spearheaded all recovery assets due to confidence in his abilities and judgment.
SFC David was vital to the success of HHB 1-119 COMET inspection, achieving 96% PWE and a 99% material general, with an overall average of 99% for all reportable equipment in AMSS.

The NCO with the most experience, he has succesfully performed and supervised the most recovery missions within the Battalion incurring zero injuries. He has also performed several recovery missions for units outside the Battalion demonstrating his dedication to the Army's mission.
