      Quarter Three - October, 2021

      Sergeant Tom Kazansky

      Sergeant Tom Kazansky joined the 101st Airborne Division Realism Unit on January 5th, 2021 where he was first assigned as a Rifleman in Second Squad, First Platoon. Since then, Sergeant Kazansky has made his expedient growth through active participation and involvement in our community: developing camaraderie with his peers and providing a helping hand anywhere he can.

      From the beginning, Sergeant Tom Kazansky made an impactful, positive impression with everyone in the unit. He has demonstrated a capacity for leadership, through his management of Second Squad as its Assistant Squad Leader, and now as its Squad Leader. Throughout his time here, he has changed the way that we look at recruiting and leadership. As one of our newer squad leaders and recruiters, he's given us fresh ideas and provided us with a reliable and competent base to Second Squad. Providing positivity, laughter and always exceeding expectations, wherever he may step: here's to you Sergeant Kazansky.

      Why did you join the 101st Airborne Division?

      WW2 is by far my favorite setting in Arma 3 Milsim. After my last unit I was looking for a new, structured and more professional one. A friend of mine, P. Hernandez, was in this unit and directed me here.

      Any favorite/funny/memorable moment throughout our whole time in the unit?

      I know a lot of the guys say this, but the Battle of the Bulge was really a great campaign. Since it was my first operation here I was kinda nervous and excited. After that it really made an impression on me and decided this was my place. My pasta speech was great too, I have that video in my heart, check it out in Howell's Bar boys. 

      Any advice to give to your fellow Paratroopers?

      Just have fun. Why play if you are not having fun? At the end we all want to enjoy ourselves playing this game together. If you are not, then you can always say so. Command always appreciates feedback.

      What value is the most important to you and why?

      Between patience and perseverance. Everything in life takes time and it can be a bitch sometimes. You just have to trust the process and when you feel like quitting, try to remember why you started

      What motivates you? 

      A lot of stuff, but the most important things are that I know every time I get in the server there's going to be a new adventure waiting for me and that I can help and do my best to ensure everyone has a good time. Besides I like being a Paratrooper too much.

      What would you say about the progress of the unit, and how you've contributed to it?

      I remember when I joined, there was barely one rifle squad plus HQ. To see where we are right now it brings me real joy. I try to help every day to bring new guys to the table as a recruiter and keep things organized in PERSCOM. Now that I'm a Squad Leader another goal I have now is to get all my men to have a great experience and get them back in one piece, hopefully.

      Any valuable lessons you have learned while being in the unit?

      To be humble. When I joined I thought with the amount of experience I already had this unit would be an easy ride and I wouldn't have to put a lot of effort in. Boy was I wrong...
