Last Saturday Grand Bayou Resort was given an award by the National Guard unit at Coushatta. The commander, Captain Chad Ford presented a laser engraved wood plaque to Park Manager Rene Albright.
Members of the unit presenting the award in addition to Ford were First Sargent Michael Barrett and Private First Class Tredaveon Brown. Accepting for Grand Bayou Resort were Albright and Gate House Attendant Stacy Bolyer.
Captain Ford thanked Albright and her staff for all that Grand Bayou Resort does for the Guard. The plaque reads “Thank you for your continued support of the Louisiana Army National Guard, and for allowing unimpeded access to your fine facility to conduct Zodiac boat training year round.”
In accepting the award, Albright said, “I appreciate this very much. We are glad to help the National Guard with training. If there is anything we at Grand Bayou Resort can ever do, we’ll do it.” And Albright wished the guard unit “good luck and stay safe.”
Captain Ford told the Grand Bayou staff this award came from the heart of the Officers, Non Commissioned Officers and Troopers of C Troop, 2-108th Cavalry Squadron.
