Garcia started the course in the beginning of September and graduated with 102 other Soldiers after successfully completing all requirements to become an NCO. During the graduation ceremony, the guest speaker, 1st Sgt. Glen D.

The course is physically challenging and intensive, and places emphasis on leadership skills to prepare Soldiers to advance to the rank of sergeant.
Soldiers from 6MLMC including Col. Michael Talley, 6MLMC commander, attended the graduation to congratulate Garcia and to wish her continued success in the Army as an exemplary NCO.
