172 AW - "We are Family!"

Congratulations to the 172d AW Airman and Family Readiness office on receiving the 2013 Department of Defense Reserve Family Readiness Award. This award program was established in 2000 to recognize the top unit in each Reserve component that demonstrated outstanding family readiness in support of superior mission readiness. It is broadly recognized that family readiness is an essential component of mission readiness and greatly enhanced the deployability of the Guard and Reserve. Demands placed on the military members and their families over the last 14 years demonstrate the critical role of the Reserve component in supporting our Nation. Pictured accepting the award at the Pentagon in Washington DC are Maj Gen Augustus Collins (The Adjutant General, State of MS), Col James Hartline (172 AW Vice Wing Commander), SMSgt John Myers (172d AW First Sergeant)and Mrs Marianne Breland (172d AW Family Programs Coordinator) and her husband Ret MSG Randy Breland.
