BBNC - Personal Note Torrian M. Peterson 11/1/2018  
1SG Torrian M. Peterson, NU MSL 2018. Great to see Gunslinger 7 exemplifying the Army and Norwich values.

"For those of you who dont know, my brother-in-law Anthony has Down Syndrome. So yesterday Anthony went to work with Danielle. After previously going multiple times with her, you wouldn't think there would be an issue. Without any explanation, Danielle was told that Anthony is a "liability" by her boss and that he is no longer able to come to work with her.
But it was no issue at all! The United States Army will take you Anthony! Anthony spent today as 1SG for the 23D Military Police Company. He addressed discipline issues on Soldiers at the Company, especially for those who forgot to call at ease and stand at parade rest! He conducted leaders checks of our areas making sure they were cleaned to standard. He even got to sit in a turret of a real humvee and climb the cargo net. He was given a coveted company coin for his hard work, and a lifetime membership in the Gunslinger Company.
Anthony, Danielle and I owe a very big thank you to 1SG Torrian Peterson for taking him under his wing and giving him this opportunity."

BBNC - Personal Note Lisa S. Malone 6/5/2018  
Lisa's husband wrote in an update on his wife's activity; Lisa has been on active duty since graduating and has been setting the navy on fire ever since graduating from Norwich in 2011. I realize I'm bias as her husband, but I'm also retired navy and know truly what an impact she is have on the navy and how she is representing the Navy and Norwich. She has completed two arduous deployments and is currently assigned as an Integrated Air Missile Defense - Weapons Tactics Instructor, not only has she been a lead for live fire with a purpose but has been briefing the Red Sea brief over that last two years, all over the world to countless admirals, captains, CNO, and even the Senate Arms Committee. She has been so exceptional that Admiral Wade gave a her a spot award, a Meritorious Service Medal, which I'm sure you know as an O-3 is very unheard of. Admiral Wade said she was the face of the WTI program and has placed them on the map. All of this has been done while she is completing her JPME and Masters Degree. We are also hoping to get our son to go to Norwich after he graduates from Fishburne Military School, she speaks so highly of it. See Photo.
