LANCASTER, Pa.—Army National Guard Capt. Jeanne M. Falchek has returned to the U.S. after being deployed overseas at a 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.
Falchek is a battalion logistics officer with the 328th Brigade Support Battalion, based in Lancaster, Pa. The captain has 15 years of military service.
She is the daughter of Regina E. Falchek of Linden.
The captain graduated in 1993 from Rahway High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in 2001 from Stone Hill College, Easton, Mass.
