Soldiers of the Nebraska National Guard will go to Germany to train the Armed Forces of Ukraine
UTAN, Nebraska (Nebraska) — Soldiers from the Nebraska National Guard are about to embark on a year-long deployment to US European Command.
Gov. Jim Pillen and leaders of the Nebraska National Guard issued statements during a send-off ceremony Friday morning at the Atlas Readiness Center in Yutana, according to the Nebraska National Guard.
Thirteen Nebraska National Guard soldiers from 1-134th Golgotha Headquarters and Headquarters Troops are expected to serve for a year in the US European Command area of responsibility and will be stationed at a training center in Germany.
They will provide company-level mentorship to colleagues from the Ukrainian Armed Forces, with a focus on planning and conducting operations in the field and garrison. The National Guard says soldiers are being asked to contribute to NATO interoperability by improving logistics processes and improving officer training and education.
