Capt. Alan Brown and his wife, Margie, and daughter, Maria, stand by as Brown prepares to receive the Missouri Commendation Ribbon for his service during state emergency duty in 2011.

Missouri National Guardsmen saw a historic year in 2011 when they were activated for five state emergency duty missions. Many soldiers have received recognition for their efforts during state emergency duty.

Capt. Alan Brown, the commander of Headquarters Company, 110th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade of Kansas City and a command historian for the Missouri National Guard in Jefferson City, is one of those Guardsmen. Brown was recently awarded the Missouri National Guard Commendation Ribbon for his state of emergency duty service.
