Of the Guardsmen, Sen. Lummis said, “I’m so proud of the men and women who serve in Wyoming’s National Guard. These dedicated Airmen and Soldiers represent the best of Wyoming. Their personal sacrifices and bravery are inspiring, and I’m humbled by their willingness to serve our country not only on Inauguration Day, but every day, no matter the challenges that arise. They are truly an inspiration, and I wanted to let them know how grateful I am that they rose to the call and volunteered to serve this week.”
