Congratulations to our Veteran of the Quarter
Sergeant Benjamin D. Griffith
Shift Supervisor Benjamin D. Griffith of the Northstar Center is GEO’s Veteran of the Quarter.
Prior to working at the Northstar Center, Benjamin joined the U.S. Army in 2009 out of Bloomington, Indiana. He became a medic and was immediately stationed at Fort Wain-wright, Alaska following his training. Benjamin spent a year with his company and platoon before they were deployed to Afghanistan in April 2011.
Of his time serving in the U.S. Army, Benjamin says, "We were very close. An infantry com-pany is something I never could have imagined if I did not experience it firsthand. As a med-ic, I had one mission while I was in the Army and in Afghanistan and that was to save my brothers if ever they should fall. The lives of 25 men were in my hands if something were to happen. Their trust in my trained skills was all they had to go on and they gave that trust to me completely."
During his time serving his country Benjamin received the Combat Medic Badge, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal and made the Commandant’s List in the Warrior’s Leadership Course.
Benjamin says, "The team at the Northstar Center work well together and in some aspects re-minds me of my old platoon. There are far different circumstances, but slight similarities are still there." Benjamin also says that he is glad that he found employment with The GEO Group at the Northstar Center and is also glad he became a part of the Northstar Center team.
