The Army awarded Maj. Rob Bojarski, 39, of Hempfield the Meritorious Service Medal for developing a joint logistics training program with the Kuwaiti National Guard during his nine-month deployment to Kuwait.

'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Noteworthy: The Army awarded Bojarski, an Army reservist, the Meritorious Service Medal for his work during a nine-month deployment to Kuwait with the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command out of Moon.

Age: 39

Residence: Hempfield

Family: Wife, Kerri, and sons Christian, 8, and Nathan, 3.

Occupation: Bojarski's civilian job is supervisory logistics management specialist for the 316th ESC. His military service is as a logistics officer for the command.

Education: Bojarski holds bachelor's degrees in business administration and political science from Washington & Jefferson College.

Background: During the 316th's deployment to Kuwait from June 2012 to March, Bojarski developed a joint logistics training program with the Kuwaiti National Guard that allowed both sides to share information on how they go about moving people and equipment in combat conditions. Bojarski said strengthening ties with Kuwaiti forces helps make the United States more secure.

Quote: “It would make it easier for us to function on a battlefield. It's a hostile region. It definitely benefits us to work with the Kuwaitis and develop that partnership with them.”
