100th Training Division NCO inducted into prestigious Sergeant Audie Murphy Club Staff Sgt. Emily Anderson

Command Sgt. Maj. James Wills, senior enlisted leader for the 80th Training Command (TASS), congratulates Sgt. 1st Class Jessica Lam and Staff Sgt. Kristina Fallis for their nomination into the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club. Both soldiers were selected after appearing before a Sergeant Audie Murphy Club board held by the 80th TC headquarters July 13.

RICHMOND, Va. – Sgt. 1st Class Rosemary Armijo, assigned to the 100th Training Division (Operational Support), becomes the newest inductee into the United States Army Reserve Command chapter of the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club during a ceremony hosted by the 80th Training Command in Richmond, Va., July 13, 2013.

“This has been a great experience,” Armijo said. “I had to be focused and be disciplined as I prepared, but it paid off.”

Before Armijo could be accepted into the club she had to be nominated by her leadership, appear before a board at the unit level, and appear before a final selection board where she had to answer questions about a range of military subjects.

“There is nothing more prestigious as the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club,” said Command Sgt. Maj. James Wills, senior enlisted leader for the 80th Training Command (TASS). “You are labeled among the top 1 percent of NCOs and will be from now on.”

Wills continued to explain the SAMC is not about memorizing various topics, but about being a leader who positively represents the Army on and off the battlefield.

“Sgt. (1st Class) Armijo set a new standard during her board appearance,” he said. “Our inductees are truly the future of the Army, and the Army's in good hands.”

Armijo proved her commitment to helping other soldiers with SAMC preparation by sponsoring Staff Sgt. Kristina Fallis, 6th Battalion, 108th Regiment, during a SAMC board held earlier in the day.

“Inductees must continue to take back to their units what they learned during their SAMC experience,” Armijo said. “It becomes our job to mentor soldiers and tell other outstanding NCOs about the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club.”

During the induction ceremony, Fallis, along with Sgt. 1st Class Jessica Lam, assigned to the 76th Operational Response Command, were told their board appearance resulted in being nominated for induction into the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club.
