GOVERNOR REACTS TO PASSING OF RETIRED IDAHO NATIONAL GUARD GENERAL LARRY LAFRENZ

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter issued the following statement today in reaction to the death of Major General Larry Lafrenz (retired), former commanding officer of the Idaho National Guard.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of General Lafrenz, whose military career and exemplary service to the citizens of Idaho helped shape a generation of citizen soldiers as devoted as he was to protecting our values and way of life. Larry was a warrior to the end and a great leader of the men and women who go into harm’s way on our behalf."
