Nine Years and Six Months of Service (Thimo R. Friesenhan)
Sgt. Miochevich said:
Having a soldier serve for years in our community is always a great sign of dedication and loyalty. This is especially true when a soldier has not been here for two or three years, but even longer. Way, way longer. Nine and a half years of meritorious service is something that we should all strive to, an achievement that is truly remarkable and must be remembered by all. It is thus my great pleasure that I am now able to award T/5 Friesenhan with his 19th (you read that right!) Army of Occupation Medal, in the hopes that he will stay with us for many more years to come, offering his wisdom, friendship and talent for blowing the enemy up with explosives. Thank you, T/5, and congratulations!
