  • Wyo. Air Guard aircraft maintainers practice recovering fighter aircraft

    An A-7 Corsair II aircraft streaks across the cloudy landscape. The pilot transmits a distress call to the tower to relay that his aircraft is heavily damaged. He manages a hard landing but his aircraft has lost all system power and veered off the taxiway into heavy mud.

  • Your fight is our fight

  • Airman gives insight into balancing civilian and Guard job

    I pulled up to the parking lot of the Torrington police station which is about eighty miles northeast of Cheyenne near the Nebraska border. It is an understated brown building which shares its location with city hall. Over the glass doors in block letters reads “police station.” Officer Rebekah Miller is waiting for me in front of the doors to the station. She is wearing a hat with the Torrington police patch above the brim, which slightly shades her eyes. Her black uniform adorns her patrolman shield, Torrington police patch, radio and utility belt which carries her weapon and handcuffs. It is a stark contrast to the Airman battle uniform she wears on the weekend when she is working as a command post specialist. We exchange greetings and enter the building as she starts an informal tour of her department.
  • Women of the Wyoming National Guard

    In 1869, Wyoming became the first state to grant women the right to vote. More than a century later, the Equality State continues to be a trendsetter for women – it houses Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 297th Infantry, which employed the first female infantry soldier in the country. Today, of the 2,702 airmen and soldiers serving in the Wyoming National Guard, approximately 1 in 5 are women. They fall into the rank spectrum from slick-sleeved airmen and empty-chested privates, to brigadier generals. These women, officer and enlisted, serve as doctors, lawyers, pilots, mechanics, and yes, even infantry.
