Sergeant Sean Nobles … a.k.a. ‘Sergeant-Major Morale’:

Cheers and congratulations to an excellent tech, instructor, and mentor. Thanks for the laughs, support, and memories at CFSCE … and for inviting my wife (Melissa) and I to your home to share a few pints with the troops and hang out with two epic bulldogs (those were some hefty canines … like cast-iron stoves with feet).

You’ve a rare gift to elevate morale in a room. You’ll be missed.

Best of luck on your new career. Take care and be safe.
