Son of Woodlands man receives military honor
The son of a Woodlands man and a Houston woman has been inducted into an elite organization intended to honor noncommissioned officers.
Army Staff Sgt. Sean E. Swint was honored with membership in the Sgt. Audie L. Murphy Club. Named after the most decorated American combat soldier in World War II, the club is composed of noncommissioned officers who have demonstrated strong leadership skills, courage in the performance of their duties, and other admirable traits. Candidates are nominated by their first sergeant and then evaluated by a board composed of high-ranking officers.
Swint will receive the Audie L. Murphy medallion in honor of this achievement.
Swint presently serves as a multiple rocket systems section chief in the 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Red Cloud, South Korea. He has been in the military for four years.
Everett T. Swint, the honored soldier's father, lives in the Woodlands. His mother, Caryl D. Swint, lives in Houston.
