Emma Marie Baird Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service

2001 - Mrs. Evelyn M. Majauskas

Mrs. Evelyn M. Majauskas is a most dedicated and professional volunteer. In the 2 years she has volunteered as the United States Army Recruiting Command's (USAREC) Lead Volunteer (ACS Programs), she accumulated over 4,000 hours of service leaving a lasting impression on how to make a difference in one' s community.

Mrs. Majauskas is responsible for mentoring and guiding over 300 Army Family Team Building (AFTB) instructors and 200 AFTB Master Trainers, located throughout 5 recruiting brigades consisting of 42 battalions, 5 Army medical detachments, 238 companies, and 1531 recruiting stations located in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, Panama, Germany, and the Pacific Rim.

Mrs. London served as the Reception Committee Chairperson in April 1989 and served in that position for nearly 6 years. During that time, she worked directly with the ACS Volunteer Coordinator to train new volunteers at the front desk and to ensure they felt welcome in their new surroundings.

Mrs. Majauskas assisted with the overall operation of the HQ USAREC's AFTB Program, providing support to over 27,000 soldiers, civilian employees, and family members. In addition, she served as publisher and staff writer of the USAREC AFTB monthly newsletter which has a monthly circulation of over 1000 copies.

Mrs. Majauskas provided specialized AFTB program information and technical guidance to headquarters staff, brigade and battalion commanders, and Soldier and Family Assistance Program Managers. She collaborated with the U.S. Army Community and Family Support Center to ensure the needs of USAREC remained in the forefront of Army leadership. Mrs. Majauskas was the only volunteer to be included on the CF-51 training schedule. She provided training to over 45 GS-09 Soldier and Family Assistance Program Managers.

Recognizing that USAREC and TRADOC needed to work together, Mrs. Majauskas developed and implemented a Delayed Entry Program (DEP) for USAREC. Mrs. Majauskas believed USAREC could improve a new soldier's success at IET through a good DEP program. Because other vision and insight, several recruiting companies have incorporated AFTB into their DEP management programs. In addition, Evelyn trained more than 1000 IET soldiers at U.S. Army Armor Center and Fort Knox.

Mrs. Majauskas developed AFTB Distance Learning Modules for USAREC's geographically dispersed population. While over 60 percent of the recruiting force and their families live more than 65 miles away from any type of military installation, through the Distance Learning Modules Mrs. Majauskas developed, all USAREC family members can now access AFTB training through the USAREC Soldier and Family Assistance Website.

Mrs. Majauskas is also involved in the Fort Knox Red Cross, OWC, and Chapel programs. While each of these are important, it is her efforts in Army Family Team Building that will have a lasting impact on the United States Army Recruiting Command, Army Community Service, and the rest of the Army.
