I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of your Soldiers for all of their hard work and dedication during my tenure as Reaper 7 and thank you for supporting the Troop and the Soldiers. You have probably heard this a thousand times, but we cannot do what we do without the support of our loved ones back home, without the support of our friends and families. I will always reflect back on my time here with fondness and I will truly miss being able to take care of the Reaper Soldiers and the responsibility inherent in that role. Good luck to all of you, 1SG Dunn is an experienced Non-commissioned Officer and I know he will do a great job as Reaper 7. Respectfully, 1SG Elsaesser Reaper 7, Out
