Meritorious service while serving as NCOIC, 175th Support Maintenance Company, Fort Jackson, South Carolina from XXXXXXX to XXXXXXXX. Staff Sergeant Billy Mays demonstrated a pattern of outstanding performance during the preparation, execution and recovery of the 175th SMC's JRTC rotation 19-05. He displayed a high level of competence and professionalism while serving as NCOIC and Sergeant of the Guard. As NCOIC, he was responsible for the welfare, accountability, safety and mission readiness of 23 Soldiers and all assigned equipment valued at more than $500,000. Sergeant Mays set the example by stepping out of his MOS as a wheeled vehicle mechanic and into one of the most critical roles in the company as the company Supply Sergeant. His dedication to duty, commitment to excellence and competence were unquestionable and gave every senior leader in the chain of command the freedom to shoot, move, communicate, engage and plan to meet operational standards. Sergeant Mays' extraordinary efforts and selfless service during this period reflect great credit upon himself, the 175th Support Maintenance Company and the United States Army.
