Pictured above is the presentation of the UGSOA Local 274 1st annual employee of the year award. Heath Gebauer has been with the Access Control Guards at Fort Greely for just shy of 5 years. As an experienced officer, he often fills in for sergeants when they are not available, he has a very keen eye for contraband and mentors others in their development. We congratulate him on being the 1st UGSOA Local 274 Employee of the year. As the winner, he received a $100 gift certificate for dinner at the Clearwater Restaurant.
