DoD staffer rewarded for 44 years on the job

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Recognized for her many years of service in the Department of Defense, the 36th Wing Commander's secretary, Joyce Martratt, was presented with a civilian medal today. Martratt was a prisoner of war during the Japanese Occupation and served under more than 20 generals.

She thanked the servicemembers for recognizing her, and says she has no intention to retire anytime soon, saying, "Recently we have become Joint Region now, and I'm proud to say that when they were trying to translate the phrase on the logo, they called Joyce, so I feel like I'm part of the logo because I translated the words."

Martratt will have served for 45 years this December.
