Family readiness group leader honored for work

-A A +A
By John Barnhart

According to Sergeant First Class Howard Holt (U. S. Army, ret.), a family readiness group leader is only supposed to serve in that role for three or four years. He noted that that was the pre 9/11 standard. Janine Fowler did it for six. This included the company's deployment to Afghanistan.

Recently, Bedford's National Guard company gave her a plaque honoring that work. It was a surprise. Two sergeants, in camouflage, showed up at Bedford's H and R Block office where Fowler works as the office manager.

How did she start doing that volunteer job in the first place?
