    Int. "Commander Anderson is now Chief of Staff of Director’s Counterterrorism Special Operations Team. He is working in D.C. not in Quantico . Congratulations. Is the first insignia still important to you?"

    "It reminds me of the time when I had started as a rookie HRT but with honor and pride."
