HORSHAM, Pa. --  Volunteers from the 111th Attack Wing's Logistics Readiness Squadron took time out of their day to help a new recruit move her household goods June 30, 2015, in Drums, Pennsylvania.

Airman First Class Shawna Belusko, a traditional guardsman and newly-assigned 111th LRS individual equipment clerk, found herself in bind, needing to immediately move her belongings. Having limited options and time, Belusko, who is currently attending military technical training at Lackland AFB, Texas, asked her mother to contact Anna Richar, 111th ATKW Airman and Family Readiness manager. Coordinating within the Wing, eager volunteers within the LRS leapt into action to assist the young Guardsman.

"We moved her [Belusko] six rooms of furniture out of her residence and into a U-haul, drove the furniture to a storage facility and unloaded them there," said Sommers. "She's a member of our shop, she's a member of our family. That's what the Guard's about."
