How you came to know/observe the nominee's actions? As SPC Pope's team chief, I observe her actions daily.
 
Why does this individual deserve recognition?  SPC Pope is nominated for her exceptional support and dedication to the 1-68 AR BN. SPC Pope is a Joint Fire Support Specialist. She joined 1-68 in November of 2020, serving in numerous positions such as FO and gunner. She has worked for both A and C Companies. Her service includes a rotation to NTC, successful gunnery, this current rotation to Europe and more. Her professionalism and hard work was displayed when we successfully completed training with the conduct-of-fire trainer (COFT) in three days, scoring higher than any other FIST team.

SPC Pope is an instrumental member to her section. Her longevity and devotion to her job has made her the SME on all aspects of the Bradley Fire Support Team (BFIST). She has greatly assisted A CO FIST in learning how to operate, maintain and effectively put to use the BFIST. Her performance is a direct reflection of her determination to accomplish the mission. She takes pride, initiative, and ownership in her equipment and unit. SPC Pope's potential and performance are unlimited, and she will continue to excel in whatever responsibilities are handed to her. Her dedication and hard work reflects great credit upon herself, 1-68AR BN, and the US Army.

Additional Comments:   SPC Pope is one of the best soldiers I've had the pleasure of working with. Her knowledge and leadership capabilities will take her far in this career. SPC Pope is well known in this BN for the relationships she has built with subordinates, peers and superiors. This has given our maneuver counterparts confidence in her ability to quickly and accurately provide fires in any situation.
