Air Force Staff Sergeant Brenda Jean joined James Ballentine VFW Post 246 in 2009 and earned her VFW status by serving in Desert Storm at Khobar Towers, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Prior to her deployment she was the Wing Commander’s Assistant at both Whiteman AFB, Missouri and RAF Greenham Common, England (both missile bases). SSgt Jean also was a part of the administrative team supporting the Soviet inspectors during the deactivation of the GLCM which was a part of the 1987 INF treaty. For this effort she received a special recognition from the Commander in Chief, USAF – Europe. Other recognitions throughout her career includes Senior Airman below the zone, Airman of the Year, Honor Guard NCO of the Quarter and two distinguished Air Force Commendation Medals. During her active duty free time she also organized and led a base Honor Guard and played on the women’s Air Force volleyball team.
Brenda is in her 8th year serving on our House Committee Board. She has dedicated over 2500 volunteer hours at our Post with the bulk of those hours as a member of our remodel committee as well as organizing several VFW events including the Veteran’s Day Big Band 1940’s party for the last two years. Thank you Brenda for your ongoing dedication and commitment to James Ballentine VFW 246.
