Another long standing 3rdID veteran, Officer Candidate J.Drake shown great leadership and dedication to the Unit. Over his time within the 3rdID OCS J.Drake has proven to be dependable and always at the ready, taking over when things get rough and setting the example for those under him to follow. Due to his exemplary leadership as 1SG, it is with great admiration that Jannes Drake be promoted to Officer Candidate to further lead the Unit as he has in the past. We have no doubt in his ability to lead and delegate those under him. Congratulations Drake and welcome to the Officers Corps!
