100th Training Division NCO inducted into Sergeant Audie Murphy Club

From the Army News Service:

Sgt. 1st Class Rosemary Armijo, assigned to the 100th Training Division (Operational Support), was named the newest inductee into the United States Army Reserve Command chapter of the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club during a ceremony July 13 hosted by the 80th Training Command in Richmond, Va.

“This has been a great experience,” Armijo said. “I had to be focused and be disciplined as I prepared, but it paid off.”

To be accepted into the club, Armijo had to be nominated by her leadership, appear before a board at the unit level and appear before a final selection board where she had to answer questions about a variety of military subjects.

“There is nothing more prestigious than the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club,” said Command Sgt. Maj. James Wills, senior enlisted leader for the 80th Training Command (TASS). “You are labeled among the top 1 percent of NCOs and will be from now on.”

Wills continued to explain the SAMC is not about memorizing various topics, but about being a leader who positively represents the Army on and off the battlefield.

“Sgt. (1st Class) Armijo set a new standard during her board appearance,” he said. “Our inductees are truly the future of the Army, and the Army’s in good hands.”
