National Guard




The It Team The New Hampshire National Guard is on the forefront of the War on Terror and still tends to the usual cataclysms like floods and pestilence. Shortly after the attacks of 9-11 they mobilized to secure our state’s airports. Since then more than 1,800 Guardsmen have spent up to 12 months deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. New Hampshire Guard soldiers responded to assist with Hurricane Katrina relief in Louisiana and then assisted New Hampshire communities during the flooding that took place in 2005 and 2006. The award-winning documentary “The War Tapes” featured three N.H. Guardsmen and made them the face of the Guard for millions of movie-goers. But the real It Men and Women of the National Guard are not celebrities. They are the regular citizen soldiers who put themselves on the line in relative obscurity. We’ve chosen three regular guys, Sgt. Kiernan, Sgt. Wyman and Lt. Newman of the C Co 3rd Battalion 172nd Infantry (Mountain) New Hampshire Army National Guard, to stand in for their brothers and sisters in arms, at home and in harm’s way.

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
