Sessions awarded by military group

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, was recognized by the Association of the United States Army this week.

The organization presented him with its 2009 Outstanding Legislator Award for his support of the Army.

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, was also recognized. He's the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Sessions is a senior member of that committee and accepted the award in Washington from retired Gen. Gordon Sullivan. He's the former Chief of Staff of the Army and current president of the association.

This was the 11th year the award has been presented. Past recipients include former Senators John Warner, R-Virginia, and Joe Lieberman, I-Connecticut.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
