"Capital Guardians" answer the call to serve overseas
WASHINGTON, DC (04/17/2015)(readMedia)-- A send off ceremony for soldiers of the District of Columbia Army National Guard's 276th Military Police Company will be held at 1 p.m., Tuesday, April 21, at the D.C. Armory - 2001 E. Capital Street, Washington, D.C. 20003.
The D.C. National Guardsmen will deploy for nine months to Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
While overseas, the D.C. National Guard Soldiers will assist in managing the Theater Field Detention Facility. Their mission will include a range of detainee operations: providing for the care and detention of, and coordinating transportation, of U.S. prisoners in the region.
