General Robinson cited Staff Sergeant Caroline Domenech in written testimony submitted to the United States Senate Committee on Armed Services. Below are General Robinson’s comments on 2016 National Guard Defender of the Year Staff Sergeant Caroline Domenech.
“Our ability to defend the United States against ballistic missile threats is underpinned by the dedication of Missile Defenders like Staff Sergeant Caroline Domenech. Staff Sergeant Domenech is a member of the Alaska Army National Guard assigned to the 49th Missile Defense Battalion. She has served as a communications officer, is now a weapons officer in the Fire Direction Center at Fort Greely, Alaska, and was recently named the Missile Defender of the Year. I am grateful for the professionalism and proficiency of Staff Sergeant Domenech and her fellow Missile Defenders who stand ready to engage inbound threats when called upon to protect the United States.”
MDAA has been honored to recognize the very best missile defense Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and National Guardsmen since 2010.
