About 90 soldiers left Bradley International Airport Sunday morning for Texas, where they will continue training.
Maj. Gen. Thaddeus J. Martin, who is the adjunct general and commanding officer of the Connecticut National Guard, says the 143rd Regional Support Group and the 192nd Military Police were sent to mobilization stations in Texas, and from there the soldiers will be deployed for tours of duty that will last nine to 12 months.
“Deploying two units simultaneously is no easy task, especially when the missions are so different,” said Maj. Gen. Martin. “This is a testament to the hard work and training these units have done to ready themselves to be successful.”
About 35 members of the 143rd Regional Support Group, a Middletown-based unit commanded by Col. John Wiltse of Berlin, will provide command, control and administration to all base life support operations from a post in Afghanistan.
