Proud Grandfather & Former 1SGT Shares Moment Pinning 1SGT Rank on Grandson

The First Company Governor’s Foot Guard (State Defense Force) is a military unit with a proud tradition of continuous service in the United States, supported by individual families. Recently a member of that unit Josh Akeley was promoted to First Sergeant, becoming the third member of his family to hold this rank. He was pinned by his grandfather in a memorable moment of achievement and family tradition.

We congratulate 1st Sergeant Akeley on this historic achievement.

The First Company Governor’s Foot Guard not only prides itself on being the longest, continuously serving Military Unit in the United States, but also prides itself for having the unconditional support from our own individual families.
