"I dreamed I was giving care under fire for the next five nights at home. The training was that intense."

That training etched in Maj. Debbie Walker's mind and sleep was the Combat Casualty Care Course, an eight-day joint-service course in Texas conducted for medical readiness personnel such as physicians, physician assistants, nurses and other specialized health care providers to enhance operational medical readiness. The training is designed to provide leadership skills, field medical knowledge and the ability to combine both in stressful combat situations.

It is not uncommon for members of the Wyoming Air National Guard to tell others the Guard is like a second family. And like family, they take care of one another, provide mentorship up and down the ranks and lend a helping hand when needed.

In February, members of the WY ANG took the family concept across the border to assist the Montana ANG with its ongoing transition from F-16 fighters to C-130 cargo and transport missions. This involved a full weekend of training and mentorship in multiple career fields both inside and outside the aircraft.

A life of service

This post was originally published by 153rd Airlift Wing, Wyoming Air National Guard - News

It's 1969, Richard M. Nixon is in the Oval Office, "The Brady Bunch" is on television, the hippies are at Woodstock and Neil Armstrong is the first person to set foot on the moon.

In 1969, the men and women of the armed forces are at war in Vietnam while our nation is at war with itself, its civil rights and its identity.

Across the country, be it college professors and their students, political leaders and their pundits or religious leaders and their flocks, thousands of ordinary Americans protest our involvement in Vietnam War and will rally at bases, ports and depots to personally insult, mock and denigrate our service members on their return home.

At 1 a.m., most of the population of the state of Wyoming find themselves in the middle of their REM cycle; sound asleep and completely carefree. Maj. Christopher Troesh, commander of the 84th Civil Support Team (CST), doesn't have the luxury of being carefree and he has little familiarity with a REM cycle as he rarely gets enough sleep to experience it.

In the early morning hours on June 22, Troesh received a call from the Laramie Fire Department detailing the events that caused a chemical fire in a chemical storage facility located in close proximity to the Laramie High School. Although the Laramie Fire Department was able to contain the fire, they were not trained to identify and assess the chemicals present in such an incident- however, those employed by the CST are.

Wyoming Air National Guard Facelift’s coming to fruition

This post was originally published by 153rd Airlift Wing, Wyoming Air National Guard - News

July 30, 2013 in Cheyenne Airport and Air National Guard, Wyoming by clevine

What comes to mind when you hear the word facelift? One of the possible definitions of facelift, according to Webster's Dictionary is "an alteration, restoration, or restyling intended especially to modernize." Whatever picture you paint in your head when you hear these words, one common theme runs among all associated terms: improvement. However, improvement does not always come easy and can take time, hard work and perseverance to achieve.

Improvement is exactly what the Wyoming Air National Guard (WyANG) had in mind in 1997 as they examined Building 16 and the state of disarray it was coming to. The building housed more than one-third of WyANG personnel, yet was one of the most outdated and unsafe buildings at the base. It was at that point, with safety and job satisfaction in mind, that the command staff at the WyANG came together with one dream in mind -- a complete building 16 renovation.
