March 8, 2016 — INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Soldiers and civilian staff from the 310th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) and the 377th Theater Sustainment Command took the opportunity to honor the 45 year public service career of Margaret “Peggy” Ranschaert with a length of service certificate and emblem here, March 4.

A robust audience of colleagues joined Brig. Gen. Vincent B. Barker, the commanding general for the 310th ESC, and Maj. Gen. Leslie Carroll, the commanding general for the 377th TSC, in celebrating Ranschaert’s service.

Ranschaert began her service in 1968 as a typist at the Defense Finance Center in Indianapolis, and with only a short hiatus, has been an Army civilian employee since then.

Ranschaert has also worked as a medical receptionist and assistant treasurer and health benefit adviser in the now closed Hawley Army Community Hospital in Indianapolis, and later began as a Soldier and Family Assistant Program Manager with the U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion, Indianapolis.

While assigned there, Ranschaert moved to different positions as a MEDPRO’s, TRICARE Health Benefit Advisor, and worked on issues of pre-authorization and payments.

Ranschaert began her service as the Family Programs Coordinator in June, 2013, where she has been involved with several pilot programs, including the Family Readiness Group New Era, the Solder Life Cycle, and the Family Programs University.

“My motto is and has always been T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More),” said Ranschaert while accepting the service award.
