June 28, 2010
Sgt. Maj. of the Army Kenneth O. Preston visited Tobyhanna June 7-8. While here he toured depot facilities, met with Soldiers assigned and in training, and was the guest speaker at the Tobyhanna Chapter of the Association of the United States Army luncheon. Preston also presented Global War on Terrorism medals to seven depot employees: Robert Abromavage, Linda Audett, Michael DeAngelo, Robert Ehrgood, David Fisher, Dean Georgaides and Todd Telipski. In his remarks at the luncheon, Preston noted that the Army has more Soldiers forward deployed than ever, despite winding down in Iraq. He said 255,000 Soldiers are in nearly 80 countries fighting terrorism and assisting in humanitarian missions such as Haiti. "We are the best in the world because of all of you and Soldiers serving around the world," he said.
