SP5, Ivory N. Sanders, served in the United State Army from January 1979 to January 1985.

Her service decorations include: Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal and Good Conduct Medal.
Ms. Sanders says “My military experience was worthwhile and beneficial. I visited locations around the United States and the world that I don’t believe I would have ventured to had it not been for my military career and contacts. I met lots of wonderful individuals from almost every part of the world. These introductions taught me to dispel stereotypes and appreciate all aspects of other cultures and lifestyles. I’ll cherish these memories for a lifetime!”
Although born in Syracuse, NY, Ms. Sanders calls Baltimore her “home town”.
