“It is not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change” - Charles Darwin. This year has been wild and to be the Battalion Commander has brought many challenges. However, I know CSM Cribb and COL Joyner have both prepared me and my fellow Top Three to be the best leaders our Battalion has. I plan on continuing our tradition of excellence in leadership, academics, and service. To all those before and after I hope to leave a lasting legacy that improves this Battalion for years to come.
