I Own This: December 2023 Nominees

PS Magazine’s I Own This campaign recognizes Warfighters of all services who exemplify the highest standards of care for their assigned vehicles and equipment and contribute in meaningful ways to their unit's overall maintenance and supply posture. In short, they live and breathe readiness.
For December, we had two (2) Warfighters nominated for this program. Both are deserving of this recognition and in the holiday spirit, we decided to spotlight both.

She regularly collaborates with and has earned the trust of the battalion maintenance officer, the FSC, and civilian contractors which are parties she works with to solve complex maintenance problem sets.

This not only shows his capabilities as an effective leader, but also as an asset to all of the Army and its future.
