"It has been a culmination of outstanding Soldiers and proactive leaders that's allowed us to reach an achievement like this," said Staff Sgt. Jacob Paugh, schools noncommissioned officer, 509th Signal. Sgt. 1st Class Kelvin Harris 509th Signal Battalion detachment sergeant said, "The Soldiers are doing an outstanding job listening at the safety briefings and having pride in the unit to continue the streak." "Supervisors identify high risk behavior by conducting high risk assessment counseling. Soldiers are using the battle buddy system and always have a plan prior to going out," he said. "We have a great group of Soldiers and we are a close knit team. I'm proud of our unit's accomplishments and look forward to us continuing the streak," said Harris. 509th Soldiers give credit to their fellow Soldiers for acting responsible. The streamer that hangs from the 509th Signal Battalion guidon is a testament to outstanding leadership and Soldiers from the 509th that go out and do the right thing even when no one is watching. Command Sgt. Maj. Javier Abad, 509th Signal Battalion said, "In my 25 years of service I've never seen a unit achieve this, and I'm very proud of our first rate Soldiers and their outstanding achievement. These Soldiers are setting a standard for others to emulate."
