Outstanding Leadership - Recognized

1st Sgt Troy Steward, a member of 2nd Squadron 101st Cavalry who spent most of 2006 as the NCOIC of a 16-man Embedded Training Team in Afghanistan, was recognized this month by the USO of Metropolitan New York for his service to the Army. Steward, pictured here on �the Stan� received the George Van Cleave Military Leadership Award during a banquet on Dec. 6.

While serving in Iraq Steward, age 38, maintained a blog, www.bouhammer.com, which became one of the most-read military blogs on the Internet. Steward�s writings were included in Doonesbury Cartoonist Garry Trudeau�s book �The Sandbox� which highlighted the blogs of 40 service people serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

They�re both the same, Steward once told �The Washington Post� "There�s a big beach in both, and there�s no ocean over there.�
