As I mentioned, Jean and Andrew are back in Germany now, having completed a 15-month tour in Iraq.  Their unit held an End-Of-Tour Awards ceremony today.

Jean was awarded an ARCOM (Army Commendation – Awarded for “distinguishing oneself by heroism, meritorious achievement or meritorious service.”).

Andrew was awarded an AAM (Army Achievement Medal – Awarded forMeritorious service or achievement in either combat or noncombat based on sustained performance or specific achievement of a superlative nature but which does not warrant a Commendation Medal or higher.“).

Jean sent me the pictures below – click to enlarge:
