CHEYENNE, Wyo.- Twice a year, Wyoming state officials help welcome new recruits into the military. Governor Matt Mead, U.S. Senator John Barrasso and Major General K. Luke Reiner were among those giving recognition to the many men and women who are stepping up to help serve our country during the Wyoming National Guard enlistment recognition ceremony November 10th.
Senator Barrasso said with nearly 80 enlistees, he believes it may be the largest group they've ever had enlist at one time. He added, "It shows the commitment of the people of Wyoming to continue this incredible legacy of service to our country."
Governor Mead says he's proud of Wyoming for always showing great support not only to those stepping into the military, but also for those serving and those that have served. He said, "By supporting men and women in our military, supporting our veterans, we'll continue to have those that are willing to stand up and say, 'I will defend this country.'"
