On March 17, the National Capital Wing hosted its annual conference and awards banquet.

The conference was held in the Air National Guard Readiness Center at Joint Base Andrews, Md.  The conference agenda included a wing update from the commander, wing aircrew meeting, cadet summit, communications training, professional development, logistics traiing, and a guest speaker from the Embassy of Denmark.

The banquet was held in the Bolling Club at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, D.C.  Col Richard Cooper presented a number of major wing awards to cadets and officers.  The guests were treated to two excellent guest speakers: Mr. Jim Roberts, and Mr. Larry Tracy.  The U.S. Air Force Band’s rock group, Max Impact, provided the evening’s musical entertainment.  Making the evening extra special were the many door prizes and visits to the grog bowl.

Thanks to all wing members who worked so hard to make this year’s events so enjoyable.  Hope to see everyone again next year!
