FIRE REPORT: The brush fire that broke out about 8 p.m. on Saturday night near the Army Aviation Support Facility, 20,000 Army Aviaiton Drive, in Reno is completely estinguished, said an Army aviaiton official Sunday morning. Rain helped extinguish the fire before it threatened any structures or equipment. Army aviaiton activities were never halted and continue as scheduled today.
Congratulations and good luck to Lt. Col. Ryan Swindell as he assumes command of the 17th Special Troops Battalion! Thanks to outgoing commander Lt. Col. Neil Oscarson for his service and efforts!
Second Lt. Emerson Marcus, the National Guard's historian, is answering questions about World War I cannons at the Poppy Project World War I exhibit today at the Nevada State Museum in Carson City. One of the cannons on display is a World War I relic that had been on display at the University of Nevada, Reno, for decades and was recently renovated by Nevada Army Guard maintenance Soldiers. Hurry down to see displays of international uniforms, medals and equipment. The exhibit commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. If you can't see Emerson today, don't worry; exhibits and events are set to continue through November. Call the Nevada State Museum, 775-687-4810 for information and schedule of events.

BROTHERLY BATTLE BUDDIES: The Nevada Army Guard welcomes the Taylor brothers into its ranks this week! When Staff Sgt. Erik Gondorf of the Recruiting and Retention Battalion, right in second photo, visited the Taylor household in Bullhead City, Ariz., to encourage Matthew Taylor, 18, to join the Nevada Army Guard, he scored a surprise enlistee -- Matthew's older brother Eric, 20! Both brothers graduated from Palo Verde High in Las Vegas. Matthew will join the 240th Vertical Construction Company and will become a horizontal construction engineer; Eric is set to join the 72nd Military Police Company and will become a military policeman. If you are in southern Nevada and not yet in the Nevada Guard and desire to learn military occupational skills and receive lucrative pay and benefits, call 702-643-4243 for information on how to join the Taylor brothers in the Nevada Guard! Invite your relatives to join as well!

#ThrowbackThursday to two years ago and this photo of Senior Master Sgt. Cameron Pieters, a flight engineer, learning how to operate a C-130 equipped with the U.S. Forest Service's Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System, or MAFFS, at Channel Islands, Calif. The 152nd Airlift Wing was named the newest unit to operate the firefighting equipment in 2016 and attended its first training that year. Four units operate MAFFS nationwide. Pieters and a crew of Nevada airmen, now fully certified after two years of training and getting flight hours over actual fires with members of other MAFFS units, left Reno today to help fight the fires in Colorado and could potentially fly their first solo mission this week.
Happy Independence Day!
Happy Independance Day - and be safe out there!

ICYMI: Last month, Airmen of the 232nd Operations Squadron, Nevada Air National Guard, volunteered with Three Square to feed those in need in southern Nevada. Nine Airmen sorted, prepped and packaged 6,280 lunch meals at Three Square’s Kids Café in Las Vegas, according to members of the squadron.
Through volunteer support and the help of almost 1,600 community partners, schools and feeding sites throughout Southern Nevada, Three Square aids more than 271,000 people in the Southern Nevada community who are in need. Established in 2007, Three Square is southern Nevada's only food bank providing assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark counties.
There could be a Charleston Hartfield elementary school next fall.
