Lisle native is Ill. National Guard brigade’s Soldier of the Year
LISLE – Tending to combat wounds and calling for a medical evacuation helicopter were just two of the many skills one Lisle native had to apply during a recent competition.
Illinois National Guard Spc. Zachary Lange, combat medic for the 708th Medical Company of North Riverside, was named Soldier of the Year at the 108th Sustainment Brigade’s 2013 Best Warrior Competition, held Aug. 10 to 11 at Camp Lincoln in Springfield.
“Two-and-a-half years ago when I first joined [the National Guard], I didn’t see myself competing in something like this,” Lange said. “It’s exciting and means a lot to me to be able to be a part of this. I’m very excited and very proud.”
