WASILLA, Alaska - Alaska Army National Guard Capt. Michael Thrall, outgoing commander of the 297th Military Police Company, bows his head at the front of his formation during the benediction as part of a deactivation ceremony for the company at the Alcantra Armory in Wasilla, Alaska, Nov. 2, 2023. “It is the efforts of these Soldiers in formation whose attitudes and actions have made this company succeed, whether that be on the deserts of Kuwait, the hills of Guantanamo Bay or the home forests of Alaska,” Thrall said during his closing remarks.
