  • West Point Senior Ready To Graduate Into Service

    Sep 25, 2009

    Matthew Wilson didn't know his dad during his Army years. By the time the younger Wilson was born, John Wilson was getting ready to retire from a 22-year stint as an Army officer. But growing up in a post-Army family hasn't kept Wilson from finding his own way into the military's officer ranks. "I still feel like I've grown up in an Army family. I knew my father had served and so had my grandfather. It was something I knew I was always going to do." Wilson has begun his senior year at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. His graduation with a bachelor's in electrical engineering in May 2010 will be the culmination of a goal he set after attending West Point's Summer Leaders Seminar following his junior year at Grissom High. "I attended the leadership courses at West Point and the Naval Academy," Wilson said. "The programs are meant to expose students to the rigors, to the reality of the military academy. "I really liked the atmosphere at West Point. I made good friends during that week who I am still in touch with. I had a great squad leader. I liked everything about it." It didn't take long for Wilson to realize that West Point was the place for him. And, as he decided his path, Wilson's parents dedicated themselves to providing support to their son and other Alabama West Point cadets. They have both served as the president of the West Point Parents Club of Alabama, and continue to assist with club activities.

  • Setting Example of Supporting Troops

    Sep 25, 2009

    When Rick Turner retires in November from his position as executive director of the Test Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment Activity, he will be taking with him a reputation of excellence and commitment built during 33 years of civilian service. It is a reputation that will be recognized nationwide at the Association of the U.S. Army annual meeting and exposition in October when Turner is presented with the annual Department of the Army Civilian of the Year Award for outstanding service to the Army, its Soldiers, civilians and families. "I view this award as recognition of the Army value of selfless service. This award is recognition for the USATA team and the other folks at Redstone who support us," Turner said. "We have 61 different locations in 11 countries, in 26 states and on three different continents. We have great Americans working for us. They are truly supporting our customers, and I have the honor of representing them. This is a team of professionals - 90 percent of which are former Soldiers - who don't care who gets the credit as long as Soldiers get the support they need. That's what makes it easy to come to work every day." Similar to others who have received prestigious Army awards, Turner said he is "humbled" and "honored" to be chosen for the AUSA award from among thousands of dedicated DA civilians, and considers it a "great honor" to be recognized for the work that's being done by USATA employees in support of Soldiers "who raise their right hand to defend our nation and, possibly, give their life for it." He also sees the award as an opportunity to promote the work of USATA's 600 employees.
