Entry Title Date
Recognizing Sfc Debra L. Newton, Upon Her Retirement October 22, 2015
Joe Courtney, D-CT
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize an outstanding member of the Connecticut National Guard, Sergeant First Class Debra Newton. Debbie’s service has transcended her title and encompassed a range of National Guard responsibilities and volunteer positions throughout her more than 35 years of National Guard service. Although she has served in multiple capacities as a Public Affairs Officer, ultimately as the Chief Public Affairs NCO, Debbie has always strived to go beyond her responsibilities and further serve the Guard community in Connecticut and beyond."
Congratulating Colonel James Walker July 17, 2014
Dean Heller, R-NV
"Throughout his career, Colonel Walker continued to pursue all of the educational training that the Army National Guard had to offer. With the support of his wife Doris Colonel Walker decided to pursue three NCO professional development schools, earning him the prestigious NCO Ribbon. Colonel Walker also participated in an Officer Candidate School at Clear Creek near Carson City and was a pioneering student in the Nevada primary leadership development course, graduating at the top of his class with honors. After his success there, he served as a training officer for the next graduating class. His ability to give back to the National Guard and his community was also exemplified during his 3 years of teaching ROTC at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Upon his retirement from the National Guard, Colonel Walker plans to continue working for National Security Technologies as the company’s facility manager at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas."
