Monday, it was back to work on post for Chief Warrant Officer 2 Karen Beattie. She had been in Washington D.C. receiving the honor.
"I was like, that is really cool that my chain of command thinks so highly of me, but I truly didn't think I would get it because there are so many soldiers that do so many amazing things every single day," WO2 Karen Beattie said.
But Beattie does a lot of good things, too, including volunteering with families who've lost loved ones on active duty.
Beattie explained, "When I found out I won I think my first words were, Oh no! Because I just couldn't believe they picked me out of all those soldiers."
At the time she was nominated, Beattie was not only doing her actual job with the 31st, Air Defense Artillery Brigade, but she was filling 3 separate Warrant Officer positions and still found time to give back to Survivor Outreach Services.
