I Own This: October 2021 Nominees

PS Magazine’s I Own This campaign is designed to recognize Warfighters of all services who exemplify the highest standards of care for their assigned vehicles and equipment and contribute in meaningful ways to their unit's overall maintenance and supply posture. In short, they live and breathe readiness.
This month, we had one (1) Warfighter nominated for this program: SPC Jose Colon-Flores, US Army.

SPC (P) Jose Colon-Flores
Army / Active
E FSC, 6th BEB (ABN), 4-25 IBCT (ABN), JBER, Alaska
Nominated by: CPT Dakota Relford

How did you come to know/observe the nominee's actions? He's one of my unit's great Paratroopers.
Why does this individual deserve recognition? SPC (P) Colon-Flores is one of the best Paratroopers in Easy Company. He was tasked with upholding the standard for the battalion’s daily fuel support operations while simultaneously preparing a layout and PMCS for Distro platoon’s only small unit support vehicle (SUSV). SPC Colon-Flores singlehandedly prepared all BII and coordinated with maintenance to ensure timely repairs on the vehicle. All parts were serviced and the vehicle was brought to 100% capability ahead of time for the 1-40 CAV to inspect in perpetration for a bi-lateral exercise with the Indian Army.
Additional Comments: As a promotable SPC who recently passed the board effortlessly, SPC Colon-Flores did not fail to display the aptitudes, roles and responsibilities of a NCO who is expected to lead and motivate. SPC Colon-Flores emulated through his actions the type of Paratrooper we want to keep in our ranks.
