Yesterday approximately 30 Air National Guardsmen from the 129th Rescue Wing based at Moffett Field, CA boarded two MC-130Ps and left behind their friends, family and coworkers and headed off to Djibouti, Africa. While heartbreaking for their families, these brave Guardsmen deployed to provide combat search and rescue support for Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa. To these and all Armed Forces personnel everywhere, thank you for everything you do. And to their family and friends, and even bigger thank you for your sacrifices.
Safe Journeys and we’ll see you when you come back! And to the readers of this blog, please leave a comment below wishing our troops well.
