Danny Garner, also called Mr. G by many teammates, working at his desk in Columbia Recruiting Battalion headquarters.
You read about monthly observations in the media and see them on calendars. For the month of April there are: Month of the Military Child; Stress Awareness Month; Financial Literacy Month and National Volunteer Month to name a few.

Columbia Recruiting Battalion has now added one more for the year 2017. Danny Garner, Executive Assistant to the Battalion Commander, is the first Columbia Recruiting Battalion Civilian Staff Person of the Month for April 2017.

Garner has worked as a federal civilian employee since 1995 after he retired from the U.S. Army. He has been working at his current job since 2012. Previous battalion jobs include working in S-1 and at the Fort Jackson Army MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) office. “I am grateful to be singled out by others,” Garner said. “And getting lunch on the XO (Executive Officer) was good too,” Garner added.

The program has rotating perks for each month ranging from a paid lunch to time off awards. There also might be months when no one is recognized. It works by other staff members noting, in writing, the good behavior they witness from their fellow workers. “This is all staff driven and to show gratitude for your peers,” said Capt. Howard Falls, Battalion Executive Officer.
