LAKEHURST — Army Reserve Master Sgt. Georgette Bush is returning to the U.S. after a deployment serving in the Southwest Asia Theater of Operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
The soldiers return to Joint Base Dix-McGuire-Lakehurst, for debriefing, evaluations and out-processing procedures before returning to their regularly assigned Army Reserve or National Guard units.
Operation Enduring Freedom is the official name given to anti-terrorism military operations involving U.S. troops and allied coalition partners. Active duty and reserve component members from all branches of the U.S. armed forces have been deployed to support the war against global terrorism outside the borders of the United States. U.S. troops serve in South, Southwest and Central Asia, the Arabian peninsula, the Horn of Africa, islands in the Pacific, and Europe.
The sergeant, a human resource specialist with 31 years of military service, is regularly assigned to the 1st Battalion, 309th Regiment, based out of Fort Dix.
She is the sister of Danielle E. Bush of Plainfield, and George H. Bush Jr. of Newark.
In 1977, Bush graduated from West Side High School, Newark.
