Congratulations to 113th Wing DC Air National Guard F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft pilot Capt. Jonathan Morgan for being awarded the gold medal of valor during the 41st Prince George's County Valor Awards April 25, 2018.
Morgan was one of 60 local residents recognized at this ceremony for their self-less acts of bravery to save others. Although Morgan was recognized at the ceremony, both he and 113th leadership recognized the professionalism of the 113th The National Guard maintenance and operations ground crews and back shop personnel as well as the partnership with local law enforcement, first responders and the host-base Joint Base Andrews .

Capt. John Morgan is presented an award of valor during the 41st Prince George’s County Public safety luncheon. Morgan is a #113wing pilot who, while flying an F-16 as part of everyday training, experienced an in-air emergency that caused him to eject and land the aircraft in a wooded area located in Prince George’s County, MD. Morgan’s extensive training and quick reaction enabled him to minimize injury to others in the local area. No injuries were reported that day and it is for that very reason Morgan is being honored today.#113WG #DCANG

The District of Columbia National Guard provides support to local law enforcement authorities while conducting crowd management, traffic control, and vehicle intrusions operations during the #MarchForOurLives demonstration on March 24, 2018, in Washington, D.C. The soldiers also supplemented Metro’s crowd management with directing and ensuring the safety of participants at 12 Metro Forward stations. The District of Columbia National Guard additionally supported the city with stand-by rapid detection teams manned by personnel from the 33rd Civil Support Team that provided chemical biological radiological nuclear and high-yield explosive detection support. The authority to aid in the mission comes from requesting emergency agencies to the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. Finally, the D.C. National Guard acts as an aide multiplier, by performing a civic duty of providing safety to residents and visitors during the event. (U.S. Army National Guard caption by Sgt. Jennifer Amo/released)
