Tamara Sloan, a technician in the Systems Management Division at the USMA Library, recently received her retirement pin from the United States Air Force, honoring her for fifteen years of service. The ceremony took place on November 11 at the Veterans Green in Middletown, Connecticut, during which Tamara was also presented with an Air Force Commendation Medal – 2nd Oak Leaf Cluster and a CT State Medal for retired veterans. While in the Air Force, Tamara rose to the rank of Technical Sergeant, and among her many assigned duties, was deployed four times in support of Operations ENDURING FREEDOM, DESERT FALCON and IRAQI FREEDOM.
Tamara holds an Associate of Science degree in Information Technology (Magna Cum Laude) from South University, Savannah, GA, and is currently in pursuit of an Associates of Applied Arts degree in Performing Arts (Drama/Theater) from Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, NY.
While Tamara has only worked at the Library since July of 2013, she has already made herself an indispensible part of daily operations with her cheery disposition and knowledge of systems and computers. Congratulations, Tamara, from everyone here at the Library!
