598th Transportation Group receives Meritorious Unit Citation.
The 598th received this honor for their participation in Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2002 to 2004.
Fletcher emphasized the importance of the 598th's role in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. "The 598th Transportation Group truly excelled in moving the defenders of peace, operating deployments from beginning to end with simultaneous operations in the EUCOM and the CENTCOM area," Fletcher said.
Col. Gary R. Stanley, commander of the 598th, was honored and proud to receive this citation.
"This is a great moment for the 598th Transportation Group," Stanley said. "Col. Victoria Leignadier, commander at the time, started the operations to safely and rapidly get material on the ground. Successfully executing OEF and OIF operations could not have happened without the personnel from the 598th who made lots of personal sacrifices in this period." (Photo by Bram de Jong)
