Murray-The Association of the United States Army, Utah Chapter held a luncheon
at the library to honor
and supporters for recent service.
The April 6th luncheon was part of the groups' general membership meeting.
Col.(R) Fred Allen presented awards to family support workers. Lynnette
Wright, from the Reserves, and Sundee Peterson, from the Utah National Guard,
were both presented with plaques for their hard work and long hours supporting
the families of deployed soldiers.
The Association honored Peterson for her work as the 19th Special Forces family
support coordinator. Peterson started in May, 2003, as a volunteer,
working with her husband's company. In July, many of the
Special Forces units were deployed and Peterson responded by working diligently to
establish and improve the family support system.
"Sundee was an obvious choice for this award," said 2nd. Lt. David Jones, family
support coordinator for the Utah National Guard. "When her husbands' unit
was deployed she went into overdrive, giving 110% effort into the program."
