Paralegals Bond in Baghdad

Following parallel career paths, Roxanne Johnson and Tamara Smith prioritized family over career, marrying and raising children before serving in the United States Army. On February 21 at the Multi-National Division - Baghdad Justice Center in Camp Liberty, Iraq, both women took one more step forward in their military careers as they were promoted to private first class. Johnson is a military justice paralegal from Smithfield, North Carolina, and Smith is a paralegal assistant from East St. Louis, Illinois. The two are best friends and are both assigned to Alpha Company, Division Special Troops Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. The two have known each other since basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

Both have found that the paralegal occupational specialty has been a good fit. Smith wanted to be in admin to help her fellow soldiers.
