Gainesville, Fla., native enters senior NCO ranks

Matthew McAndrew (center), an unmanned aerial vehicle operator with Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 3rd Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, stands next to his wife, Micha, as he prepares to be promoted from staff sergeant to the rank of sergeant first class during a ceremony, Feb. 13, at the 3rd BSTB headquarters, Fort Benning, Ga. McAndrew, a Gainesville, Fla., native, has been serving in the United States Army for 14 years. He has been in 3rd ABCT since October 2007. Capt. Dezi King (left), HHT commander, spoke to McAndrew's character during the ceremony, praising him for remaining a diligent, dedicated and resilient noncommissioned officer despite challenges in his life. King and McAndrew had previously served in Company A, 3rd BSTB, before coming to HHT. "This promotion would not have happened without the help and support of all the leaders I have had along the way," McAndrew said.
