The person who we have chosen is Master Sargent Ronnie Dawkins who served over 20 years in the United States Army. During his tenure he served in key positions as a Drill Sergeant, Chief Ward-master, Project Leader for the United States Army Test and Evaluation Board, and in support of Operation Enduring Freedom as a medical combat advisor. His decorations, awards, and campaign ribbons included the Combat Action Badge, Expert Field Medical Badge, Drill Sergeant Identification Badge, Meritorious Service Medal (2nd Award), Army Commendation Medal (3rd Award), Army Achievement Medal (4th Award), Army Good Conduct Medal (6th Award), National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Star (2nd Award), Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Korean Defense Service Medal, Overseas Service Ribbon (4th Award), NATO Medal, Driver and Mechanic Badge, Expert Marksmanship Qualification Badge – Pistol, Expert Marksmanship Badge – Rifle, Total Army Instructor, and Master Fitness Trainer.
