ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Maj. Drew Steadman was named an "Outstanding Georgia Citizen" Dec. 30 at Alpharetta City Hall.

Steadman, 36, has done four tours of duty - two each in Iraq and Afghanistan. He met his wife Emily while on tour in Iraq, and the two married in 2010. They now have two children, Addison, 2, and Lylah, 1.

He was born in Georgia and grew up in Dunwoody. His mother, Bonnie, now lives in Alpharetta.

He attended the U.S. Air Force Academy before moving over to the Army.

His brother, Ryan, is also serving in the military.

Steadman will now be stationed in Fort Knox.

In recognition of his service to both the state and the country, Steadman was presented with several honors Dec. 30. Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle and Sen. John Albers issued proclamations to the major.

"As a resident of Georgia, there's not enough that we can do to give our appreciation for what you do," said Belle Isle.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued the "Outstanding Georgia Citizen" award, which is given to Georgians who go above and beyond in their dedication to the well-being of the state.

"I'm a proud veteran, and I'm proud of you," said Roger Wise Jr., who served in the Medical Corps and presented the proclamation from the secretary of state announcing Steadman as an "Outstanding Georgia Citizen."

Steadman said he was honored by the attention.

"This is a huge 'thank you' for us," Steadman said. "We're very grateful for it. I'm humbled you took the time to honor us."
