Area weatherguy Chuck McWilliams (KETV 7), was awarded the Gen. Douglas MacArthur Leadership Award for Army National Guard officers in Washington, DC this week. See the video here.
Thank you, Chuck, for your service. And thanks to all service personnel representing the US.
Chuck served in Iraq a few years back, leading his unit through an IED ambush, and updating us at home with his blog. He also served in the US Navy several years ago. He continues to be a role model, and one of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet.
When we ran into Chuck here in Omaha, we were pleasantly surprised; he’d done weather in Atlanta, and we recognized a friendly face immediately. He and his family are good people, and this award is very appropriate.
