Pierre National Guard unit to deploy to Middle East
PIERRE, S.D. – Nearly 70 soldiers with the South Dakota Army National Guard’s 152nd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion have received a mobilization order for deployment to the Middle East beginning in July 2019.
The Pierre-based unit is scheduled for a nine-month deployment where they will provide multifunctional logistics and support operations.
The unit will report to Fort Hood, Texas to complete several weeks of theater-specific training prior to deployment overseas.
This will be the second mobilization for the 152nd CSSB since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The unit first deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2013.
