North Dakota Guard unit might be going to DC later this year
A North Dakota Army National Guard unit based in North Dakota has been told it might be called to active duty later this year in Washington D.C., the Guard said Saturday.
The unit consists of about 70 soldiers and operates the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter.
The Guard said in a release that their mission would be “transport of personnel and light cargo” within the nation’s capital.
No further details were announced.
Maj. Gen. Al Dohrmann, North Dakota adjutant general, says the Bismarck-based Company C, 2nd Battalion, 285th Aviation Regiment has a safe operating record of nearly 150,000 flight hours dating back to 1958.
