HONORING OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM
Today we celebrated the men and women in uniform who tirelessly serve our nation. Your Cheyenne Chamber awarded four outstanding military units for their exceptional service to our community and our nation at the annual Military May Luncheon.
We were honored to welcome Maj. Gen. Porter, Adjutant General for the Wyoming Military Department, as our guest speaker for this annual event.
WY We Care: Over 14,200 defenders past and present live in Cheyenne. The military has been part of Cheyenne’s heritage since our founding, and it remains so today. We are committed to continuing this unique heritage as we pursue the implementation of the Sentinel Missile upgrades and work for procurement of upgraded Cheyenne-based Air National Guard planes.
“It is our great honor to pause in the month of May and put special emphasis on our ongoing appreciation for the men and women in uniform who serve in our community,” said Dale Steenbergen, President and CEO of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce.
