Each day, the VA honors a special military veteran for their dedicated service on their blog, VAntage Point. Today’s featured military member is a veteran who got her start in the Army ROTC.
Angie Holbrook was a part of the Army ROTC program during her time at Texas Christian University. After being commissioned into the Army, she served as an adjutant general officer. Some of her more impressive assignments include being deputy aide to the chief of staff of the Army, being strength manager at Fort Carson, and commanding a sustainment battalion at Fort Hood.
Holbrook also served two deployments in Iraq, from November 2006 to February 2008, and again from July 2009 to July 2010. Additionally, during her final assignment as a Commander at Fort Belvoir Garrison, she supervised the expansion of the post commissary and the opening of a new tax center and even participated in the running and support of the Wounded Warrior Project as well as the United Services Organization.
Her many accomplishments earned her an airborne badge, Legion of Merit, and Bronze Star Medal.
Holbrook retired after 27 years and now works as a manager specializing in providing solutions for the Army sector.
