The National Guard has received the American Patriot Award from the National Defense University in a ceremony in Washington D.C. and the Missouri National Guard was well-represented.
“We honor distinguished statesman and warriors who have really shown above-and-beyond dedication to public service,” University Foundation President Cathleen Pearl told Missourinet.
Accepting the award for the men and women of the Guard was General Frank Grass, Chief of the National Guard Bureau, who is a Missouri guardsman. Those at the ceremony also heard a performance by former Missouri Air National Guard member, Tech Sergeant Angie Johnson, who recently sang during the World Series.
Pearl said the award is a message to each man and woman in the guard.
