Wyoming Air and Army National Guard honor outstanding troops
The Outstanding Soldier and Airmen and Women of the year banquet was held Saturday evening at the Radisson hotel in Cheyenne.
Nominated troops are selected not just for their superior leadership and job performance, but for their involvement in the community. Many of the troops nominated serve on local boards or volunteer their time with local organizations that help those in need.
Through-out the year the Wyoming Air and Army National Guard have quarterly awards, then outstanding troops from those awards are nominated for Soldier or Airman of the year.
Army National Guard leadership said, "It's a celebration to recognize those airmen and soldiers that go above and beyond, the best of the best."
