CAREER NOTES
Date Note
7th September 2013 Promoted from Private (Pvt) to Private First Class (PFC)
21st January 2016 - Operation Black Adder Due to the teamwork focus, dedication and communication between all soldiers who participated in this mission the objectives were accomplished with minimal 53rd Air Infantry losses and no civilian casualties. This accomplishment stands as an outstanding meritorious performance during a difficult and challenging mission carried out under extraordinary circumstances and as such I believe should be recognised with the unit award of the Army Superior Unit Citation.
21st January 2016 - Operation Black Adder Private First Class Bobo Tucker demonstrated both leadership and tactical thinking in both the planning and execution of the mission the 21st January 2016. His planning enabled the unit to seize the town of Girna, neutralising a well dug in enemy force with minimal 53rd losses and no losses amongst the civilian populace. Without his planning and meritous leadership I do not believe the mission would have ended with such a successful outcome and as such I believe the award of the Army Commendation Medal is appropriate.
16th June 2016 - Operation Baldrick's Cunning Plan Due to the teamwork focus, dedication and communication between all soldiers who participated in this mission the objectives were accomplished against a well dug in, well trained, equipped and highly motivated enemy force. This accomplishment stands as an outstanding meritorious performance during a difficult and challenging mission carried out under extraordinary circumstances and as such I believe should be recognised with the unit award of the Army Superior Unit Citation.
29th December 2013 Promoted from Private First Class (PFC) to Specialist (Spc), breveted rank of Acting Corporal (Cpl)
