FORT BELVOIR, Va. -- Fort Belvoir Garrison recognizes three U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) Soldiers in a recognition ceremony, June 24.
Spc. Ciara N. Yohey, Spc. Destiny Mathis, and Sgt. 1st Class Jonathon T. Jenkins received the Army Achievement Medal from Lt. Col. David P. Fleming, commander, Headquarters Battalion, Fort Belvoir Garrison, for outstanding achievement while serving as integral members of Fort Belvoir Garrison's Community Task Force Troops in support of the Garrison's efforts combatting the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jenkins, a senior information systems operator/maintainer; Yohey, an information systems operator/maintainer; and Mathis, a human resources specialist, provided outstanding support to the Task Force from Feb. 16 to April 9.
"Anytime a parent unit recognizes a Soldier it is a great day," said Sgt. Maj. Stanley L. Hall, Jr., senior enlisted advisor, INSCOM G-3. "However, when a Soldier receives recognition for duties performed while supporting another unit it is truly something special."
Equally impressed by the Soldiers' dedication and selfless service, their company commander said their efforts demonstrates their qualities as Soldiers and leaders, and role models for others.
"Spc. Yohey, Spc. Mathis, and Sgt. 1st Class Jenkins went above and beyond the call of duty by being the first Soldiers to volunteer for additional tasks, regardless of the size, in a highly restrictive COVID environment," said Capt. Annah J. Gbee, commander, INSCOM Headquarters and Headquarters Company. "Their willingness to serve as integral members of the Fort Belvoir Garrison's Community Task Force Troops in support of the Garrison's efforts combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, enhanced the overall Garrison's mitigation efforts and contributed to prevention of widespread outbreak on post."
