The West Point Society of the Pikes Peak Region held their Junior Officer of the Year Award Ceremony at Fort Carson earlier this month.
After a three month delay due to COVID-19 pandemic, the Society presented the 2019 Junior Officer of the Year awards to:
1LT Stephen Doherty, D CO, 2-1 CAV
2LT Martha Bradley, A CO, 4th Brigade Support Battalion
CW2 Cody Smith, D CO, 299th Brigade Engineer Battalion
WO1 Brittany Baker, HHC, 1st Stryker Brigade
The ceremony was small, with the 1st Stryker Brigade Command Group presiding, and each awardee was accompanied by their own chain of command who provided remarks on these young officers’ outstanding performance and attributes. The awards consisted of a West Point Society Coin and engraved box, plus a crisp $100 bill. COL(R) Stover James and COL(R) Mike Boatner represented the Society and were thoroughly inspired by the caliber of these great young combat experienced leaders. Congratulations!
