Alycia Perkins, a drill sergeant and all-wheeled vehicle mechanic from Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 485th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade, 98th Training Division (Initial Entry Training), watches over Basic Combat Training recruits at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

From immigrant to Soldier and then to citizen — in that order
U.S. Army Reserve Capt. Adriana Scott, a force protection officer with the 98th Training Division (Initial Entry Training), was promoted to the rank of major by Brig. Gen. Tony Wright, commanding general, during a ceremony at the U.S. Army Reserve Center at Fort Benning, Georgia, on Oct. 5, 2019. Scott has served in both the Army and Army Reserve for more than 17 years, which includes two deployments to Iraq. The Soldier migrated to the United States with her parent when she was 3-years-old and was inspired to join the Army after the September 11th attacks because she felt the need to do her part and help protect the country that had given her family so much. While saying a few words to the formation, Scott's mother, Celia, got to hug her daughter while she was explaining why she joined and how thankful she was that her parents migrated to the United States when she was young so that she could find this career.
Oct. 11, 2019 - Standing before the formation, she looked down at her daughter pinning the new rank of major on her uniform. Then, she glanced over at her mother, who was beaming with pride. In fact, U.S. Army Reserve Maj. Adriana Scott’s mother was so proud of her that she walked over to the front of the formation and gave her newly promoted daughter a big hug.
