Happy 90th birthday to retired CMSgt. Bernie Carbon! Thank you for your great years of service as the 3rd senior enlisted advisor in the Air National Guard.
Last week‘s Focus on the Force was a great opportunity to pause and recognize Airmen who are going above and beyond in the ANG. What an awesome celebration of our organization!
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has established strategic and enduring relationships with organizations across defense, scientific, and industry communities. I recently had the pleasure of touring one of those organizations, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, along with my wife and team to learn about the innovative and exciting ways they support the warfight. Thank you to everyone who took part in this incredible opportunity!
Well done, Chief Landegent! Thank you for everything you do for Airmen.
Thanks everyone for tuning in to our Focus on the Force ceremony today. It was truly an honor to be able to recognize these 4 Outstanding Air National Guard Airmen. This is what it means to be "Outstanding!"
An excellent example of the Whole Airman Concept set by A1C Bevan. Fantastic!
Well done, TSgt. Merrylees! Keep up the great work in cyber innovation for the ANG.
This SNCO set a great example in always putting Airmen first. Congratulations, Master Sgt. Jurakovich!
Honoring our heritage through ceremonies that respect our fallen heroes and past veterans. The Arlington National Cemetery Wreath Laying Ceremony is truly a remarkable military tradition.
Congratulations to our 2019 Air National Guard Outstanding Airman of the year. I really enjoyed meeting them tonight as we kick off Focus of the Force week.
I had the great opportunity to meet Callie, the only search-and-rescue dog in the Department of Defense, and her handler, Master Sgt. Rudy Parsons, a pararescueman in the 123rd Special Tactics Squadron during my visit to the Kentucky Air National Guard Base in Louisville, Ky.

I had a great meeting with U.S. Senator Mike Rounds last week where we discussed the great work being done at the 114th Fighter Wing in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Senator Rounds is a key member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a strong supporter of the Air National Guard.
It was my distinct pleasure to visit with the Honorable Senator David Perdue from the great state of Georgia recently. We talked about the great work that our Georgia Air National Guard Airmen are doing for their state and nation. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Perdue plays a key role in supporting the defense of our nation. I appreciate everything he and his staff does to support our Air Force and Air National Guard.
