Every Day Heroes

Meet First Sgt. Karen Henderson:

Karen Henderson

First Sgt. Henderson was deployed to Iraq for a year-long tour beginning in May 2005. Five months after arriving, Henderson’s command recognized her exceptional abilities, and she was reassigned from an administrative position to help with communications network systems. Upon taking this position, she became the only enlisted advisor at the Iraqi Ministry of Defense. Henderson worked with the Iraqi Director General of Communications to train Iraqis there and at the Iraqi Army division headquarters. In July 2006, Henderson was awarded the Bronze Star for her work.

Thank you for your service!
