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."
