SGT Xiovanni Guanill's company commander says Guanill is always looking for ways to improve himself as a Soldier and a leader. His record proves it: NCO of the Year Board, Brigade NCO of the Year, and runner-up at the U.S. Army Special Operations NCO of the Year Board. For SGT Guanill, it's all about one thing. He wants the deployed Soldier he's replacing to go home knowing that the person following is the best Soldier he or she can be.

The Nation's strength starts here.
