Kanish will still serve as a Wyoming guardsman and has taken an assignment at the National Guard Bureau in Virginia.
Arnold has 21 years under his belt in the Wyoming Guard, with nine of those serving as an active guard reserve officer. He thanked his family for their continued support for the opportunity to serve in uniform and that he wouldn’t be here today without them.
“This new and exciting for me,” Arnold said. “I stand before you humble and excited, ready to help everyone accomplish the mission here at JFHQ.”
“I look forward to getting to know all the leaders and soldiers here,” Arnold said. “I’m also looking forward to having some fun.”
