Duluth’s 148th Fighter Wing has deployed more than 100 airmen in recent months, the Minnesota Air National Guard reported Monday.
Personnel “have deployed to multiple locations throughout the Middle East, European and African regions” in support of Operation Inherent Resolve to combat the Islamic State group in the Middle East, and the Operation Freedom Sentinel effort in Afghanistan. Guard members have been departing every month since October 2017.
"It is an honor to support our military partners in mission support against any potential threats,” Col. Chris Blomquist of the 148th said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with our deployed members and their families, as they are the true heroes.”
Deployed members are from the mission support group, maintenance group and headquarters to include security forces, civil engineering, force support, chaplains, public affairs, logistics readiness squadrons, first sergeants and communications flight.
