An Army National Guard officer from Flandreau, South Dakota has received a national award for her role as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan.
First Lt. Bridget Flannery is the winner of the 2014 Colonel Carl F. Eifler Award.
Lt. Col. Michael Oster in the same battalion says Flannery displayed outstanding leadership which improved intelligence gathering in training and combat. He says her performance saved lives and equipment.
Their battalion, based in Pierre, served a five-month deployment in southern Afghanistan last year.
Flannery was born and raised in Montrose, S.D. She has served 17 years in the National Guard.
