CHEYENNE – Brothers Graham and Kendrick Barrett, of Colorado Springs, were sworn in Feb. 20 as the newest members of the Wyoming Air National Guard’s 153rd Airlift Wing.

Graham enlisted in the 153rd Communications Flight and Kendrick joined the 187th Airlift Squadron.

The brothers enlisted under a program which will provide 100 percent of tuition to Wyoming colleges and universities, the Montgomery G.I. Bill, Montgomery G.I. Bill Kicker and an enlistment bonus.  

Kendrick is enrolled at The Classical Academy, in Colorado Springs. Graham is employed at Gyros Plus, at that city’s Chapel Hills Mall.
