FORT GREELY, Alaska -- A mobile maintenance small-arms repair team from the Arizona Army National Guard completed a weapons and night vision goggles inspection mission at Fort Greely, Alaska, for the Alaska National Guard's 49th Missile Defense Battalion June 22-25, to assist the Alaska Guard and help foster relationships between the two states.
In April, the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA) named three recipients of the 2016 Congressional Awards. The award is given to lawmakers who “advance the priorities of emergency management and homeland security.”
A field at the Arizona Army National Guard’s Camp Navajo base was recently turned into the site of a simulated Blackhawk helicopter crash and wildfire. Twelve Arizona National Guard members were strewn around the helicopter with realistic-looking traumatic injuries.
