June 17, 2022
LANSING, Mich. — Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer joined the Michigan National Guard at Camp Grayling for the 2022 Memorial Pass in Review Ceremony.
“The men and women of the Michigan National Guard have continually proven themselves as an invaluable source of compassion and reassurance to their fellow Michiganders, stepping up to serve our state with distinction through historic challenges,” said Governor Whitmer. “I am proud to serve as Commander-in-Chief of the Michigan National Guard and humbled to be part of its traditions, honoring our fallen heroes and upholding the proud legacy they built. Together, we will ensure our service members, veterans and their families have the resources they need to thrive in Michigan. I will work with anyone to reduce their barriers to employment, lower their cost of higher education and get things done that make a real difference in their lives.”
The Memorial Pass in Review Ceremony is a time-honored tradition of the Michigan National Guard during which accomplishments of the previous calendar year are acknowledged, outstanding performers are recognized and deceased and fallen members of the Michigan National Guard are honored. Governor Whitmer reviewed the formation of troops as their commander-in-chief along with U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul D. Rogers, adjutant general and director of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
“We are proud to celebrate our National Guard members who have served and are serving with honor, both at home and abroad,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul D. Rogers, adjutant general and director of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. “I also want to acknowledge and thank our families for their support and patience. Every Guard member knows how important it is to have that support and we cannot be successful without it.
