Military Monday 2021
The following biographies for each of the recipients highlight their significant contributions to our country.
- January 11, 2021: Veteran Robert A. Wayment: Mr. Waymant was part of the 66th Military Police Command and served his country with honor and gratitude. His service in Vietnam taught him how truly fragile life is and that we should live out our days with importance. Mr. Wayment has volunteered on many community boards and councils over the years, including being a member of the VFW since 1990. Robert is proud of his military family lineage with his father and uncles all serving in the U.S. Army as well as his son and grandson.
- February 8, 2021: Retired Navy Officer Zach Tudor: Mr. Tudor first enlisted in 1976, before commissioning as a submarine Limited Duty Officer. Before retiring, Tudor traveled all over the world. On the USS Boston’s sea trials, he got to meet Admiral Rickover. Mr. Tudor received many awards during his time in the Navy. I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with Zach, who now serves as an Associate Laboratory Director at the Idaho National Laboratory, and commend him for his continued service to our nation. Zach recently received another prestigious award, the Career Achievement in Government Award. A well deserved recognition for exceptional leaders.
- March 8, 2021: The Idaho National Guard: The violent, despicable acts of January 6, 2021, shook our nation to its core. In the aftermath, more than 25,000 National Guardsmen and women from around the country were stationed in Washington, D.C., in the days and weeks surrounding the 59th Presidential Inauguration to ensure a peaceful transition of power. More than 300 members of the Idaho National Guard volunteered within a day’s notice to serve this mission and traveled to D.C. in less than 72 hours from Governor Brad Little’s approval of their mission. The Soldiers and Airmen worked 12- to 20-hour shifts, often taking breaks throughout the Capitol complex. They stepped up to represent the very best of Idaho, and their commitment to protecting lives and preserving peace during this challenging time was overwhelming.
- April 12, 2021: Sergeant Robert Sanchez: SGT Sanchez is an active servicemember serving with the sixth recruiting brigade, stationed in Pocatello, Idaho. Robert recruits qualified personnel for entry into the Army in accordance with applicable regulations, supervises recruiting and conducts recruiting support activities.
