The Air National Guard "Rise to the Challenge" Tour will be one of the many attractions at the Grand Junction Air Show this weekend, providing you  an opportunity to participate in simulated missions designed to demonstrate real-life roles of Air Guard men and women. 
The interactive experience is traveling the nation educating Americans on the Air Guard's role in  serving our communities and nation.

This year the tour features a new component, the “Grateful States” initiative, “Grateful States” lets you record a personal video thank you message for those men and women currently serving our country at home and abroad. At the “Rise to the Challenge” Tour, you  can enter a video booth to record a personal message of thanks.

You can also contribute video messages to the initiative online by visiting the "Grate States" website!
