About Heather Addis

Heather joined the Family and MWR Marketing team in 2009. As the Marketing Director, she dabbles in all things marketing - from campaigns to media purchasing to research and development. Heather is enjoying having a retired husband after 17 years of Army life, is a mother of five (one human and four dogs!) and is a pop culture junkie.

"I have the best job in the world. I get to do what I love while giving back to our men and women in uniform. I could not imagine having a job that did not allow me to have daily interaction with our Service Members. Being married to a retired Soldier, I am able to understand the hardships our military face and strive to help create programs and events to make their time at Fort Gordon memorable."

Above the Call of Duty

The Golden Order of Mercury is awarded to any Signal Soldier who has died while deployed to or as a direct result of injuries or illness sustained in a Global War on Terror (GWOT) Theater. Two days after Christmas, 2013, Brian Addis – the current 2-377th PFAR S6 NCOIC – boarded a plane to Omaha, Nebraska, with the Golden Order of Mercury in hand.
