“I have a lot of pride in what my kids are doing,” said ALA member Karen Brewster. “I’m aware of the sacrifices that servicemembers make to do their job.”
Brewster, a member of ALA Unit 234 in Northborough, Mass., received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award by the Family Readiness Group (FRG) at the Massachusetts National Guard unit where her daughter, Spec. Alysia Brewster, is stationed. Her son, Spec. Nicholas Brewster, serves in the Army, presently deployed in the Middle East.
