U.S. Army Maj. Heather Clevenger, the Multinational Battle Group-East Intelligence Officer and Virginia Beach native, was presented the Knowlton Award for her exceptional performance in promoting the Army Military Intelligence community at a ceremony held on Camp Bondsteel June 27.
Clevenger's former battalion commander, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Kevin A. McAninch, the 519th Military Intelligence Battalion commander, had recommended her for the prestigious award and was able to join the presentation from Afghanistan by video teleconference. Clevenger's husband, Cliff, was also able to participate in the ceremony by VTC from Fort Bragg, N.C., with the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade's rear detachment. Clevenger is currently deployed to Kosovo as a part of Kosovo Forces 17. The Knowlton Award recognizes individuals who have contributed significantly to the promotion of Army Military Intelligence in ways that stand out in the eyes of the recipients, their superiors, subordinates, and peers. These individuals must also demonstrate the highest standards of integrity and moral character, display an outstanding degree of professional competence, and serve the MI Corps with distinction. The award was established in 1995 by the Military Intelligence Corps Association, in support of the MI Corps. MICA is the sponsoring agency and provides financial resources, administrative control, and publicity.
