Captain Scott Baird
I would like to take this time to welcome you to our web page. We are currently deployed in Central Europe conducting Force Protection missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. We have been deployed since 25 June 2002.
We deployed first to Fort Indiantown Gap where we received our initial equipment and then we proceeded to Fort Dix New Jersey where we received force protection training. We have been in Central Europe since the middle of July.
I would like to thank all of the family members and friends of each and every soldier of Headquarters Company for their continued support while we are away. The role of the National Guard has changed dramatically and we are finding that National Guard units are being deployed on a more consistent basis to assist the Active duty component in its daily missions. Please continue to visit our web page as we plan to update it with pictures and stories of our deployment. I would like to thank you again for all the support and concern that we have received while we have been deployed.
