SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Two U.S. Army Pacific Command Soldiers were recognized as the 2013 Adjutant General’s Corps Warrant Officer and Soldier of the Year.

Spc. Edward A. Anderson (right), 19th Military Police Battalion, was named Soldier of the Year and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Joshua M. Sargeant, 8th Military Police Brigade, was named Warrant Officer of the Year.

“It’s a great feeling,” said Anderson. “I just want to thank everyone for supporting me.”

The winners are invited to attend the Hall of Fame Induction ceremony and will be recognized at the National Adjutant General’s Ball, May 30, in Columbia, S.C. Anderson and Sargeant will receive the Distinguished Achievement Medal and a one-year membership to the Adjutant General’s Corps Regimental Association.

After the events of 9/11, the Executive Council of the Adjutant General’s Corps Regimental Association looked at various ways to honor the senior AG leaders who were killed in the Pentagon. The association now recognizes the NCOY and SOY with the Sgt. Maj. Larry Strickland Medal.
