Special to GUIDON
Ann Michael, freight rate specialist, Logistics Readiness Center, is nominated for her exceptional support of the 5th Engineer Battalion cargo movement for their battalion-level training exercise at Fort Riley, Kansas.
Michael booked 140 line haul trucks in a short cargo delivery window with multiple load changes. She followed up with each carrier to make sure every piece of cargo was picked up as scheduled and delivered on time. Her attention to detail and commitment to Soldiers demonstrates the Army standard of selfless service — every day.
Sgt. Brendan Flicker, a prior service trainee in Company C, 3rd Battalion, 10th Infantry Regiment, consistently took initiative to assist, teach and mentor other trainees in the company. During rifle marksmanship, he used his prior experience in both the U.S. Navy and law enforcement to adjust and give instruction on assembly and proper wear of improved outer tactical vests as concurrent training.
He also consistently spends time to reinforce common Soldier tasks, such as map reading and first aid. Further, Flicker has been instrumental in enforcing mask wearing and social distancing at training events and in the barracks, assisting drill sergeants and enabling them to give focus on their primary training tasks.
