The High Plains Warrior, Team Malmstrom’s mascot for Guardian Challenge 1999, Staff Sgt. Kevin Barber, 341st Logistics Support Squadron, leads the team in a cheer on the flight line at Vandenberg AFB, Calif. The 341st Space Wing won the Blanchard Trophy for Best ICBM Wing in 1998, the year the Blanchard was restored as a wing-level trophy after Air Force Space Command reduced it to a squadron trophy in 1994, and won it again in 1999 to become the first space wing to earn the Blanchard two consecutive years at AFSPC’s Guardian Challenge Space and Missile Competition. The mascot’s fur cap was still part of his identity in 2002 when the 341st SW again won the Blanchard. (Photo courtesy of 341st MW Historian Office)
