Soldier Keeps Vigilant

Sgt. Jeremy Jordan doesn’t dismiss suspicious activity. Earlier in June, Jordan, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, Combined Arms Support Command, witnessed a group of individuals wearing white chemical suits walk into the wood line in the residential area.

“I didn’t know what they were doing, but they were carrying boxes,” Jordan said. “Instead of approaching them, I called the IOC (Installation Operations Center).”

Personnel at the IOC investigated the activity and learned that a team from Preventive Medicine was checking mosquito traps.

The incident was of no consequence, but Bill Buhmann, IOC chief, said that Jordan did the right thing.

“That was anti-terrorism,” Buhmann said. “If you see anything that doesn’t make sense, call us at 734-1584. We always answer the phone and we won’t laugh at you.”

Capt. Adam Clark, HHC commander, CASCOM, said he wasn’t surprised to learn Jordan was the Soldier who called in the anti-terrrorism alert.

“Time and again, (Jordan) has displayed critical thinking which always leads him to make positive choices in line with Army training and values,” Clark said.
