CARLISLE, Pa. - Col. Deydre S. Teyhen was recognized as a 2014 distinguished honor graduate at the Army War College - only 61 out of 385 graduates were recognized as distinguished honor graduates - and her research paper, "Professional Soldier Athlete: The Cornerstone of Strategic Landpower's Human Dimension," was one of six papers that received the Commandant's Award for Distinction in Research.

During this past year, Teyhen was also selected by U.S. Army War College (USAWC) faculty as one of 10 students to serve as a FY14 Eisenhower Fellow and she traveled to five universities during the year and lectured on national security strategy.

Teyhen's medical background and field of expertise lies in injury prediction, injury prevention, rehabilitation, and return-to-duty of musculoskeletal injuries. She truly maximized the War College experience and is excited about going to the Office of the Surgeon General, Directorate of Health and Wellness, where she will be the lead for the Army surgeon general's System for Health and the Performance Triad.
