Planning for and executing safe, sterile trainee movement at the point of need requires great flexibility, and Sgt. Daniel Doran, Company B, 35th Engineer Battalion, has shown amazing agility in completing the mission. In a last-minute request, he processed 13 Soldiers for onward movement to Fort Bliss, Texas, and 37 Soldiers for onward movement to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, operating quickly and flawlessly at the point of friction and the tip of the spear. Doran has worked weekends to ensure these 50 Soldiers successfully received orders and departed on time. Sergeants make the Army great, and those like Doran are a big reason why we are winning and maintaining readiness on the COVID-19 battlefield.

His motivation and enthusiasm are inspiring and we appreciate all he gives and brings to the team.
