Retired Army National Guard Lt. Col. Dean Hunhoff, left, receives a bag of his favorite caramel-apple suckers from a former colleague from the Wyoming National Guard on Tuesday, June 4. Sergeant first class Adrienne Gibbs, right, was one of nearly 20 soldiers from Wyoming who flew in two Blackhawk helicopters to Hunhoff’s home south of Custer to present him with the Legion of Merit medal for his nearly 34-years of military service. Next to Hunhoff is his wife, Gladys. Their son Travis is in the background.
