PV2 Wiederhold shows a demonstrated dedication to the service of her country. She volunteered to transfer to the unit in order to deploy. Her decision to do this meant retraining in a new job. That included receiving additional training that took her away from her family even before the unit deployed to Iraq. This is an outstanding example of dedication to duty that is worthy of acknowledgement and emulation. While deployed she worked many long hours to ensure the mission was a success. Her service is commendable.
