SEA GIRT—Army National Guard Spec. Denita L. Jenkins has returned to the 154th Quarter Master Company, Sea Girt, after being deployed to an overseas forward operating base in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces and coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq. Mission objectives focus on force protection, peacekeeping, stabilization, security and counter-insurgency operations as the Iraqi transitional governing bodies assume full sovereign powers to govern the peoples of Iraq.
Members from all branches of the U.S. military and multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq’s economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full authority and responsibility in defending and preserving Iraq’s sovereignty and independence as a democracy.
Jenkins is a human resource specialist with three years of military service.
He is the son of Denise Barnes of North Plainfield and Richard L. Allen of Linden.
The specialist graduated in 2004 from North Plainfield High School.
