SUITLAND, Md. (PRWEB) May 24, 2018
Andrews Federal Credit Union recently sponsored the 2018 DC National Guard (DCNG) Military Ball, hosted by the 113th Wing DC Air National Guard and DC National Guard. Rosalind Bishop, Regional Manager, was presented with an "Outstanding Support" award from the DC National Guard Military Ball Committee.
This year's ball coincided with the D.C. National Guard's 216th birthday. In 1801, the Seventh Congress authorized the President to organize a militia of the District of Columbia, appoint its officers and call it to service in the same manner as state governors or executives. The law was approved May 3, 1802 with President Thomas Jefferson personally selecting the first officers of the unit. The ball's theme was, "Readiness then and now, remembering DCNG WWI veterans." The theme served to recognize the D.C. National Guard's First Separate Battalion.
“These brave men and women defend the nation’s capital, and our nation at-large,” said Bishop. “It is an honor to support them in any way possible. Their recognition of our support is truly humbling.”
