Kentucky National Guard: 2012 Year in Review

Goodbye 2012. Hello 2013!

Goodbye 2012. Hello 2013!

Happy New Year to all!

Once again, the Kentucky National Guard Public Affairs directorate has been lauded as THE MOST published Public
Affairs office in the entire National Guard.

I want to personally thank the entire Public Affairs team, including my PA team in Joint Forces Headquarters, our State Command Historian, our Mobile Public Affairs Detachment, our Air Wing PA team, our J6-Visual Information team and our outstanding Unit Public Affairs and Historian Representatives–all who made these stories on our news website possible!

I asked my Public Affairs staff to give me their most-memorable posts from our Kentucky Guard website.

These stories are listed below.

Enjoy these links as we bring in the new year.

To all, Cheers! Lt. Col. Kirk Hilbrecht – Director, Kentucky National Guard Public Affairs
