FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – A departure ceremony is planned for 565 Kentucky National Guard soldiers who will deploy to Africa for nine months.
Maj. Gen. Edward W. Tonini, adjutant general for Kentucky, will attend the sendoff ceremony Friday at the Frankfort Convention Center for soldiers assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 138th Field Artillery.
The soldiers will deploy to the Horn of Africa where they will work to promote regional security and stability.
Hmmm, wonder just what role they will be playing in ‘promoting regional security and stability.’? Whose security and stability – the Christians or the Muslims persecuting them?
