Nevada National Guard recognizes 150th Family Readiness Leader

Susie Crawford, the Family Readiness Group Leader for the 150th Maintenance Company here in the Capital City, was presented the Volunteerism Award by the Nevada Army National Guard for her extraordinary commitment and dedication to the unit’s soldiers and their family members.

“She stands as a testament to the many ways military spouses serve within our military community,” said Joey Davis, the northern Nevada Family Readiness Support Assistant, in a Nevada National Guard announcement.

According to Davis, some of Crawford’s notable contributions included: referrals to military and community resources, point of contact for the dissemination of unit information, meeting and event coordination, record keeping and program compliance.

Crawford is the wife of Chief Warrant Officer 2 Brice Crawford, who recently transferred from the 150th Maintenance Company to the 1864th Transportation Company in Las Vegas.

Family Readiness Group Leaders serve as a critical support resource for soldiers and their families and play a vital role in readiness throughout the state’s Army Guard units. They receive Department of Defense training and assist unit commanders in family support initiative and program directives.

The award was presented June 3.

For information on becoming a volunteer like Crawford for the Family Readiness Program, please contact your local Family Readiness Support Assistant.
