    Capt. Tennyson William Hunter, “Wizard,” the Nevada Air National Guard’s first-ever Pilot for a Day in 2019, died Monday, Feb. 22, after a lifetime battle with Kabuki Syndrome. He was 15.  Hunter, or as Nevada Air Guardsmen called him Wizard — a call sign he acquired in his whirlwind one day of service and retirement — touched the hearts of every single High Roller on the base as Pilot for a Day, an Air Force-wide program that provides chronically-ill children a chance to enter Air Force life. With his jovial spirit and can-do attitude, he made quite the impact at the Nevada Air National Guard Base in Reno, Dec. 16, 2019.

  • Four gentlemen and a lady: Nevada Air Guard promotes five to chief master sergeant in one day

    The Nevada Air National Guard held promotion boards for five separate chief positions in July—all five resulted in selections of brand new chief master sergeants. They will promote four members to the highest enlisted rank in August and one in September. Promotion to chief master sergeant normally happens once in a while; however, five chief promotions at one time is quite uncommon. By federal law, roughly only one percent of the Air Force enlisted force holds the rank of chief master sergeant.
