Rosemond honored for military services
Air Force Reserve Staff Sgt. Elisa M. Rosemond was decorated with the Afghanistan Campaign Medal in conjunction with Operation Enduring Freedom. The medal is awarded to any member of the U. S. armed services who performed duty within the borders of Afghanistan or contiguous airspace for a period of 30 consecutive days or 60 non-consecutive days. Service members who were engaged in combat with an enemy force or members who have been wounded in combat within Afghanistan may receive the medal regardless of the number of days served in country. In addition, Rosemond was awarded the NATO Medal by the authority of the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The U. S. Secretary of Defense in concurrence with the Secretary of State approve acceptance and wear of the medal by U. S. service members who have served under NATO command or operational control in direct support of NATO operations in the former Republic of Yugoslavia or as designated by Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, from July 1, 1992, through a future date to be determined. Eligibility is extended to service members who have served under NATO command at designated installations and served a specified time period in that theater or area of operations. The sergeant also received the Diamond Sharp Award. The award is sponsored by the expeditionary wing’s first sergeants to recognize individuals who display a positive "can-co" attitude and maintain "a sterling military image at all times." Rosemond, an air transportation technician, is a member of the 69th Aerial Port Squadron at Andrews Air Force Base, Camp Springs, MD. The staff sergeant has served in the military for four years. The reservist is a resident of Chesapeake Blvd., Norfolk, VA. She is the daughter of Lafayette and Diane Wynn of Greenwood. Rosemond graduated in 1997 from Greenwood High School.
