Hoeven Honors Veteran A1C Larry Wayman

FARGO, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven today presented military honors to North Dakota native Airman First Class (A1C) Larry Wayman at a ceremony held to recognize his service with the United States Air Force during the 1960s. A1C Wayman worked with Sen. Hoeven to secure the three awards he earned while serving as an aircraft electrician.

“Today we recognize A1C Wayman for his commendable service with the United States Air Force,” said Hoeven. “A1C Wayman is an American hero who has served our country with great dedication and pride. We are grateful for the skill he lent while undertaking challenging, often highly confidential missions, and it is fitting that we today pause to offer our formal thanks and recognition through the awarding of the medals A1C Wayman earned while honorably serving our country.”

Wayman enlisted in the Air Force in April 1962 and served until January 1966. During his tenure with the Air Force, Wayman served with the 7406th Support Squadron, working as part of small group of highly skilled aircraft electricians, often participating in highly classified overseas missions. For his distinguished service, Wayman has been awarded the Air Force Marksmanship Ribbon; Air Force Good Conduct Medal and the National Defense Service Medal.

During today’s ceremony, Hoeven joined members of Wayman’s family to honor his military service through the awarding of the military recognitions he earned while serving with the Air Force.
