Ohio Army National Guard unit deploying to Kuwait

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – About 150 soldiers from an Army National Guard unit in Ohio are deploying to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

A release from the Ohio Adjutant General’s Department says the unit will be tasked with providing aviation support and conducting operations in partnership with countries in the region.

The soldiers deploying are from the Army National Guard’s 1st Battalion, 137th Aviation Regiment based in Columbus.

The public was invited to attend a call-to-duty-ceremony Saturday in Columbus prior to the unit’s deployment.

Prayers they will all be safe. I wish so much they had a different CIC.

With operations drawing down, these deployments now need to be handled by active duty units.

This is an aviation unit. The 82nd Airborne has an aviation battalion deployed also. This tells me there is a helluva lot of Apaches supporting Iraq and Kurdish forces against ISIS.
