A Promotion Ceremony and Reenlistment for newly promoted SGT Jesse Stahler was held Thursday at the Golden Knights’ Headquarters on Ft. Bragg, NC. SGT Stahler is the newest member of the Golden Knights’ Competition Team. Within his MOS, 92R- Parachute Rigger, SGT Stahler achieved the rank of SGT by accumulating enough Promotion Points to make the cutoff. These points were earned by outstanding military performance combined with civilian and military education. SGT Stahler went as far as donating blood platelets for use at Womack Army Medical Center to earn a few additional promotion points.

The “Backbone of the Army” just got a little stronger!
