PLAINSBORO—Army National Guard Spec. Denita L. Jenkins has returned to the U.S. after being deployed overseas at a forward operating base overseas 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, a human resource specialist, is normally assigned to the 154th Quarter Master Company, Plainsboro. She has three years of military service.
She is the daughter of Richard L. Allen of Linden and Denise Barnes of North Plainfield.
The specialist is a 2004 graduate of North Plainfield High School.
