Womack Awarded Highest Civilian Honor from U.S. Army
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) was today awarded the Department of the Army Decoration for Distinguished Civilian Service – the highest award the Secretary of the Army may bestow upon a civilian – by Secretary Eric Fanning.
The citation reads, “for distinguished service as a member of the United States House of Representatives, House Appropriations Committee on Defense and the United States Military Academy Board of Visitors (BOV) during the 114th Congress. Representative Steve Womack was a tireless public servant advancing Congressional support for funding the Army to meet the rapidly evolving threats to our Nation's security and ensuring Soldiers have what they need to succeed. Representative Womack's steadfast support to the United States Military Academy through his committed service as the vice-chair of the BOV ensured all future Army leaders have the education and training needed to succeed. His exceptional contributions were integral to the Army receiving the necessary resources to support combat, sustain the all-volunteer force and improve the quality of life for Soldiers, Civilians and Families. He vigorously supported Army efforts and worked diligently to overcome the fiscal and political challenges inherent in funding our national security priorities. Representative Womack's distinctive accomplishments and unwavering commitment reflect great credit upon himself, the United States House of Representatives and the United States of America.”
