Above and Beyond
Above and Beyond

By Staff Sgt. Richard Harris | 12/05/2011

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — America was founded by individuals who possessed a strong conviction in the idea of citizenship.  It was this certainty that their civic duty and responsibility to the public would be the firm foundation to the creation of a strong community.  They believed that our nation’s success and survivability hinged on its citizens patriotic yearning to put the needs of the nation above their own personal aspirations.  One motivated individual could make a difference.

Soldier’s Medal recipient not a ‘Hero’
Soldier’s Medal recipient not a ‘Hero’

By Sgt. 1st Class Lisa M. Litchfield | 12/05/2011

ALBANY, N.Y. — Sometimes, the answer to a question will depend on who you ask the question of. In this case, the question is, “do you consider Julian With a hero?” If you ask Julian With, the answer is no. In fact, Julian will tell you that he was “simply doing his job, not looking for a medal,” on the day that he pulled an Iraqi Sgt. Maj. and several Soldiers from their ammunition loaded, overturned, burning vehicle and performing immediate first aid with no regard to his personal safety. If you ask nine-year old Dalton Augar, With’s stepson, he will look at you with bright shining eyes and tell you that he has always known his dad ... Read More...

Military Occupation:  Operations Officer Civilian Occupation:  College Instructor When and why did you join the Army Reserve?   I enlisted in 1990 while in my second year of college. The recruiter did a great job of promoting the GI Bill and the “one weekend a month, two weeks in the summer” concept. At first, being in the Army Reserve was all about the money for college.  When the Army downsized in the mid-90s, I transferred from an OSUT infantry battalion to the 95th Division Band. My reason for remaining in the Res... Read More...

Military Occupation:  Public Affairs NCO Civilian Occupation:  Public Affairs Specialist When and why did you join the Army Reserve? I joined the Army Reserve in 1997 shortly after I fulfilled my initial six-year active duty commitment.

As a full-time student supporting my family on the GI Bill, school loans, part-time jobs and g... Read More...
