Col. Kevin Golinghorst, Army Capabilities Manager-Geospatial, has shown leadership in building an all-star team to develop an all-star product – the Training and Doctrine Command common operating picture – to help us see ourselves and our environment here on the COVID-19 battlefield. He and his team translated requirements into a visualization. The COP is becoming the template for the other four-star commands in the Army. His expert knowledge of the Army Geospatial Enterprise, his outstanding organizational skills and his persuasive leadership ability created outstanding results and clearly reflect great credit upon himself, the Engineer School, the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence, and Training and Doctrine Command.
Jackie Morris, 43rd Adjutant General Reception Battalion reception operations, routinely does fantastic work in his role as transportation coordination liaison with St. Louis, and has truly exceeded all expectations in our fight on the COVID-19 battlefield. Just prior to our halt of recruit movement, he coordinated the transportation for more than 1,100 trainees from the Saint Louis International Airport to Fort Leonard Wood during a time of high operational tempo and uncertainty. Positioned forward at the airport, he eagerly accepted the responsibility of being on the front lines as the COVID-19 pandemic developed. While the United Service Organizations was closed for precautionary measures, Morris continued to meet and greet our new trainees with dignity, respect and a smile. His exceptional efforts enabled MSCoE to accomplish its missions of onboarding and training our nation’s future Soldiers.
