On June 12, Charlie Battery, 2nd Battalion, 300th Field Artillery Regiment was deactivated during a ceremony at Camp Guernsey Joint Training Center. Charlie Battery was deactivated as the Army and Wyoming Army National Guard restructure toward a modular force so they can deploy smaller units to smaller engagements.

Capt. Scott A. Gromer, commander of Charlie Battery, ensured that Soldiers and equipment were mission-capable as they are disseminated among Alpha and Bravo Batteries, as well as other units and schools Army-wide.

The battery has earned several awards including the Korean Service Medal, Meritorious Unit Commendation Ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon, Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon, and the United Nations Service Medal.

A deactivation ceremony open to the public will be held on June 16, at 9 a.m.
at Veteran's Park, in Worland.
