Fort Irwin United States Army Garrison Commander Col. Kurt Pinkerton presented a Blue Vase award to Jan Keuper during his final commander’s call for Garrison employees, here, June 25. Keuper, with information management at FMWR, here, received the unique award for creating a database that tracks background information for CYSS employees and volunteers, and is being considered for use Army-wide. Pinkerton gave out the Blue Vase to employees, who, he said, “have exceeded the expectations of the standard or made an immediate impact.” The colonel had been holding a commander’s call since his arrival in March 2011. Length of service awards, certificates and the Blue Vase award were presented at the hour-long meetings he held once a month. Pinkerton has been commander since June 2011 and will pass on the leadership position to Col. Jon Braga, July 11.
