III Armored Corps Soldier honored as top drill sergeant career counselor
Master Sgt. (Ret.) April Bravo poses with her husband Sgt. 1st Class Louis Bravo, a career counselor for III Armored Corps Army Reserve and National Guard retention team, after he received a Meritorious Service Medal for his being named the Army's top drill sergeant career counselor during a ceremony at Ft. Hood, Texas, Jan. 9, 2023. A Rome, New York native, Bravo transitioned 24 reserve component drill sergeants, which led him to be named the most prolific drill-sergeant career counselor in the entire Army. He beat out his nearest competitor by 10. The office he works for serves a unique role in the III Armored Corps, as it gives Soldiers transitioning from the active-duty component a chance to continue serving in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard. The Bravos met while stationed together at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Evan Ruchotzke)
