    A native of Chattanooga, Tenn., Dee began his Army career as an enlisted Infantry soldier and worked his way through the ranks where he is currently serving as Chief of Staff of the 8th Theater Sustainment Command headquartered at Fort Shafter, Hawaii. The 8th Theater Sustainment Command is an 11,000 soldier organization with troops stationed in Hawaii, Japan and forward deployed in support of combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Daugherty is a graduate of Cocoa Beach High School, the University of Florida, and he holds a Master's of Science degree in National Resource Strategy from the National Defense University, Industrial College of the Armed Forces. Other schools include the U.S. Army Airborne School, French Commando School, U.S. Marine Corps Amphibious Warfare School, Defense Language School and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

    A former Infantry Officer who commanded the Army's largest Anti-Tank Company as a captain, Daugherty later commanded a Battalion in OIF 1 and led the Army's Convoy Protection Task Force in OIF 2. Prior to his current assignment, he directed the Army's War Reserve and Army Prepositioned Stocks program at Fort Belvoir, Va.

    On March 26, Col. Daugherty's mother and stepfather, Marva and Bobby Burns from Edisto island, S.C., accepted the recognition in his honor at a formal induction ceremony held at Infantry Hall located at Fort Benning, Ga.
