This week we are honoring Giselle Allen of Anne Arundel County, who served in the United States Army for 21 years.

Allen was a Sergeant First Class and also led troops as a Drill Sergreant in Fort Jackson, South Carolina. During her military career, she served in support of Operation Sea Signal, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. She retired as a Visual Information Operations Chief.

Her daughter, Adrianna, is incredibly proud of her mom's service and calls her an amazing woman, who works tirelessly to provide for her family.
