GREAT FALLS, Mont. -- Current and retired members of the 120th Airlift Wing, Montana Air National Guard, carve turkeys Dec. 24, 2018 at the MTANG dining facility here. More than 50 volunteers showed up, many before 5 a.m., to prepare food for the 26th annual Danny Berg Memorial Dinner, held on Christmas at the Great Falls Senior Center. This was the 17th year MTANG has been a partner in this charitable event. Airmen roasted 60 turkeys, cooked stuffing and made more than 40 gallons of gravy. At the end of the day almost 600 meals were served. “This is one of the highlights of the year,” said Master Sgt. Robert Osier, 120th AW Base Services Manager. “It’s great to make a difference and to truly give back to the community.” The holiday meal is named for Retired Master Sgt. Danny Berg, a former member of the 120th AW who established the event for local residents who may not have family or friends to spend the holiday with. Berg passed away in 2008 after battling cancer.

MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. -- Col. Rusty Vaira, 219th RED HORSE Squadron commander, left, presents Staff Sgt. Damian Guzman with an Air Force Achievement Medal during a ceremony Dec. 2, 2018. The squadron combined an award as well as a noncommissioned and senior noncommissioned officer induction ceremony to recognize the superior performers and those promoted in their unit. Chief Master Sgt. Brian Furr, Chief of Operations, 219th RHS, talked about the importance of these ceremonies. “Every year we take a moment to recognize all the folks that have been promoted to that next step. NCOs are the backbone of our structure. [We want] them to understand the importance of what they do, the pivotal part in the piece of the puzzle they play. For the senior NCO induction, letting them know the importance of stepping back in their roles as the go-to subject matter expert, but more importantly letting them know they are the leaders and mentors for those that are going to be taking their place in the future. Recognition for people and what they accomplish within this organization is very important, we do a lot of good things.” The 219th Rapid Engineer Deployable Heavy Operational Repair Squadron Engineers are stationed at Malmstrom AFB and are members of the Montana Air National Guard.

Congratulations, Master Sgt. Sweeney!
More than 100 people witnessed a car crash that left the passenger near death and the driver frantically calling 911 for help. The staged event wasn't a real tragedy, but it demonstrated to some Montana Air National Guard members the real-life consequences of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
