Supply sergeant receives prestigious award

CAMP STRIKER, Iraq — Maj. Shawn Schuldt (left), a native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who serves as the brigade supply officer for the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) out of Fort Drum, N.Y., reads a short history of the Order of Saint Martin, an award given by the Quartermaster Corps, after Staff Sgt. Joseph Johansen (right), a native of Carson, Calif., was awarded the medallion at a ceremony at the Camp Striker dining facility May 6. Johansen, who serves as the supply sergeant for Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd BCT, received the award for "the highest standard of integrity and moral character and... an outstanding degree of professional competence." Saint Martin, the patron saint of the Quartermaster Regiment, is reputed to have cut his cloak in half for an itinerant beggar. (U.S. Army photo by Pfc. Jon Cano, 2nd BCT PAO)
