USGS Named Glacier In His Honor
For Service To South Pole Station
SCOTIA – Otsego County’s general, Anthony P. German, turned aside praise with levity at his retirement ceremony Saturday at Stratton Air National Guard Base here.
Saying he didn’t recognized the man described in his colleagues’ accolades, the former commander of the New York Air National Guard’s 109th Airlift Wing told the audience, “It’s not about what we do at the two-star and three-star level. It’s about what you do at the worker level.”
With the rank of major general, German also led the New York Army and Air National Guard from 2016 to 2018.
