Rep. Napolitano Nominated for National Guard Award
(Washington, DC) Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-CA) has been nominated as one of this year’s recipients of the Charles Dick Medal of Merit by the National Guard Association, in recognition of her contributions to the National Guard at the national and local level. Napolitano has been a long-time supporter of the National Guard, including their YouthChalleNGe program, which provides a path to success and discipline for high-school drop outs who voluntarily apply.
“The men and women of the National Guard have achieved remarkable success in serving and protecting our country,” Napolitano said. “I look forward to continuing my work with the National Guard on ensuring America’s continued strength and security.”
Napolitano will travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 27 to receive the award and address the association for their 133rd General Conference.
