Army recognizes Fort’s antiterrorism officer

Jesse Markum, antiterrorism officer, is an Army Antiterrorism Honor Roll Selectee for the 2012 Fiscal Year. The award includes a congratulatory letter and coin from Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter, Installation Management Command, and a certificate signed by Maj. Gen. David E. Quantock, U.S. Army Provost Marshall General.

Fort Huachuca has achieved its first antiterrorism award. Jesse Markum, Antiterrorism Officer, was selected to the Fiscal Year 2012 Army Antiterrorism Honor Roll. Markum is one of 30 recipients and the first officer to represent Fort Huachuca.

The FY 2012 Army Antiterrorism Honor Roll is part of the Army Antiterrorism Awards program, which recognizes those who work behind the scenes in the Antiterrorism field, protecting Department of Army personnel, Family members, facilities and installations. Markum’s award specifically recognizes his behind the scenes effort to protect Army personnel, resources and missions from terrorist attacks.

“To be recognized is really an honor, it speaks well to the direction our program is heading and the progress we’ve made and continue to make. Antiterrorism is a team sport. Lorraine Griffin, assistant antiterrorism officer; Monica Lake, garrison security officer; the Director of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security team; the Public Affairs Office and the subordinate units that make up the Antiterrorism Working Group are just a few who share in this award,” Markum said

You can fail alone, but you cannot succeed alone, I’m no exception,” he concluded.

Markum’s achievements have been recognized by Installation Management Command Commander Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter and U.S. Army Provost Marshall, Maj. Gen. David Quantock.

Honor Roll selectees were chosen by the Office of the Provost Marshal General Antiterrorism Branch’s

FY12 Army Antiterrorism Awards Board when it convened last December. In addition to the honor roll, other categories included Best AT Program – Installation; Best AT Program – Unit; Best AT Program – Stand Alone Facility; Best AT Program Manager and Best AT Program – Army Major Subordinate Command.
