On 24 February 2010, the 1st Battalion, 21st Field Artillery held its February Soldier and NCO of the Month board. There were four Soldiers competing for Soldier of the Month and three Non-Commissioned Officers competing for NCO of the Month. Each Soldier and NCO were asked a variety of questions ranging from Common Soldier Tasks to Military Regulations. Each Soldier was also required to present the board members with the citation of the Soldier and NCO Creed.

Among the contestants, two service members stood above the rest taking home the pride of being titled the Soldier and NCO of the Month for February 2010. The Soldier of the Month winner was SPC Michael Jimenez, Human Resources Specialist, HHB, 1-21 FA. The NCO of the Month winner was SGT Hector Salinas JR – Heavy Vehicle Driver, 575th FSC.

Congratulations and keep up the good work!
