Starting today, KFFM will profile a local soldier every week who protects Eastern Washington by serving in the Washington National Guard. These are citizens with regular jobs and homes in our community who train near Yakima for tank warfare if our country needs them.

Cadet William Grant is a member of the Washington National Guard's Delta Company 1-161. He drives a tank and lives in Cheney, Washington. He is a full-time student.

Thank you Cadet Grant for serving our country and our community.
