(Riverton, Wyo.) – When Brigadier General Steve Mount visited the Fremont County BOCES Military Science class last week at Riverton High School, instructor Cody Myers used the opportunity to present several awards to students in the program.

Receiving the first ever “HOOAH!” award and a flag pin was Chris Holcomb, who Myers said “has gone above and beyond and has done an exceptional job in the program. Holcomb, who said he is interested in joining the U.S. Marine Corps Infantry, told the General he liked the fact the Marines are “strong minded.”

“I appreciate what you are doing in the class here,” Mount said. “I appreciate your service and the great job you are doing in class.”

Myers also presented a flag pin to “Blade” McCoy, a third year Military Science student. McCoy told Gen. Mount that he was interested in an engineering career in either the Army or the National Guard.
