Governor Pete Rickets signed a proclamation this morning making today, July 5, 2016, Sgt. Calvin Koziol day.
Gov. Ricketts recognized Koziol on his achievements in winning the state, regional and national level of the Best Warrior Competition and earning the prestigious title of the National Guard ‘Soldier of the Year’.
Last March, he was asked to participate in the state competition, and then the regional competition.
The 2013 Boone Central graduate and son of John and Rhonda Koziol came out on top for both and won the National Best Warrior Competition.
