Staff Sgt. Edwin J. Rodriguez was inducted into the Sgt. Audie L. Murphy Club, a club formed in 1986 in honor of the Army's World War II most decorated combat soldier.

Inductees must be sponsored by their first sergeant and recommended by their unit commander.

Candidates are reviewed and evaluated by a high- ranking selection board, which questions, tests and scores soldiers on their knowledge of a range of subjects that warrant induction.

Rodriguez is an instructor and writer with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 81st Armor Regiment, Fort Benning, Ga. He has served seven years in the military.

He is a 2002 graduate of Miguel Melendez High School, Bayamon, Puerto Rico.

He is the grandson of Carmen Sanchez and Benjamin Alvarez of San Juan, Puerto Rico. His wife, Desiree, is the daughter of Herman and Brenda Ramos of Killeen.

Pfc. Bryan Trammell has graduated from nine weeks of basic combat training at Fort Jackson, S.C.

He is a 2006 graduate of Temple High School.
