Mike Gatto recently honored one of the 43rd’s bravest when he named Col. Nancy Summers as Veteran of the Year.
Since enlisting in the National Guard 33 years ago, Summers has served in Desert Storm, Desert Shield as well as missions in Afghanistan, Belize, Saudi Arabia, Bosnia and Ukraine.
Wow!! That’s a whole lot of soldiering. You can see why Gatto honored her over her fellow troops, many of whom seem cowardly by comparison.
Summers can be seen displaying her certificate from Gatto, alongside her parter, Cathy Arkfeld. Mike Gatto allegedly abstained from the photo so as his superior good looks would not distract from the Colonel’s proud moment.
