810th Engineer Company Deploys

Sunday morning, 116 members of the 810th Engineer Company of the Georgia National Guard deployed from the Armory in Swainsboro. Led by Captain Kenneth R. Jones, the 810th is making their third trip overseas for Operation Enduring Freedom. The unit went to Iraq in 2003 and 2005. They are currently completing training at Fort McCoy in Wisconsin before departing for Afghanistan in service to our country. The unit’s only deployment before Operation Enduring Freedom was in 1950 when the unit was mobilized during the Korean Conflict. The unit stayed in the United States during that deployment.
