Col. Sheila Bryant, commander of the 10th Regional Support Group Command, pins the Army Commendation medal onto Spc. Mara E. Snowman, a euphonium player assigned to the United States Army Japan Band, for being selected as USARJ Soldier of the Year April 25th at Torii Station's Training Support Center. Snowman, a Cleveland, Tenn. native, received notice of the passing of her grandmother and used it to motivate her to win. Snowman moves on to compete for the United States Army Pacific competition in June.
