'Freedom Salute' honors NH Guard unit for saving lives
Politicians, military leaders, relatives and friends honored members of the New Hampshire Army National Guard's 169th Medevac detachment at a "Freedom Salute" ceremony Saturday.
Wanda Lavoie of Raymond was there to honor her son, Sgt. Drew Case of Franklin, a crew chief with the 169th. She was glad to see the state hold an official welcome ceremony.
Maj. Gen William Reddel, adjutant general of the National Guard, thanked the families for their support and sacrifice. "We can't do it without you," he said.
And Brig. Gen. Craig Bennett, commander of the N.H. Army National Guard, reminded all that there are still guardsmen serving overseas as Christmas approaches. "Please keep them and their families in your prayers," he said.
