Next National Guard units to deploy is official 26

The 27th is my old brigade that and the home to many friends, old Army buddies and soldiers whom I used to lead but are now leaders themselves. It is the Brigade my son deployed with in 2008-2009. Now here it is 2011 and they are going again. Boy we ask a lot of our citizen-soldiers.

    Justin, I deployed with 278th as well, ended up pulling an interstate transfer to get over here with Oklahoma, and my advice is to make contact with someone, preferably a CO or 1SG in a line company with an open slot, get the specific unit information and UIC, then contact the TN Interstate Transfer Coordinator and request a release for interstate transfer from your chain of command, with the specifics listed. In my experience most of the full timers who work at the armories have little to no experience with interstate transfers and what I posted was definitely the only way I was able to catch this deployment. Good luck

    I am a combat medic with the 814th out of Grand Forks, ND. We are currently in ARFORGEN 2, and will not be deploying for a while. Is there anywhere I can find units deploying, to see if I can hook up with them?

    Im a medic with 1/104th Cav HHT, 55BCT and every month is a different bit of information about this supposed upcoming deployment to Kuwait in October. We were supposed to leave in FEB2012 to Kuwait but the 27th BCT took that mission.

    I’m a 15U with the 169th/935th we were suppose to deploy in the next few months & it was cancelled. I was really looking forward to this deployment & would still like to deploy. so if anyone knows of any aviation units deploying that may need some more soldiers, I’m good to go…
