    SSG Rodriguez,
    I hope you are healing well from your injury. I was quite impressed with your board appearance. You can be very proud of how well you did with this entire competition. You are still one of the top Soldiers in the United States Army Reserves! You can be proud of that.

    Thanks for your service and as your mother said in her note to you “Stay Safe”

    “Support with Pride”
