WASHINGTON (May 2, 2014) -- Diane Grant, Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region/U.S. Army Military District of Washington public affairs plans division deputy chief, bids farewell to the command during a ceremony hosted by Col. Josslyn Aberle, JFHQ-NCR/MDW public affairs officer at Fort Lesley J. McNair.

Grant received the Commander's Award for Civilian Service for six years of dedicated service to the command and has supported several high-profile events and ceremonies such as presidential inaugurations, State of the Unions, and funerals.

"I have had numerous mentors along the way, and believe that we have a responsibility for shaping our own destiny," said Grant. "In my wildest dreams, one day I will be amongst those speakers who motivate and inspire others to keep going, to stay focused, and to get back into who they are."

Grant will move on to Army Public Affairs Center (APAC) as the Policy and Doctrine Chief at Fort George G. Meade, Md., on May 5. She will be responsible for developing, coordinating, interpreting, and disseminating public affairs policy and doctrine for the Army world-wide.

"In life I have learned that you will face challenges that you will not always have answers for, that people will be people but you must always find personal courage to rise above and meet the challenges," said Grant.
