Mississippi National Guard Mobilizing To Kuwait

TUPELO, MS (Ben Caxton) — About 4200 Mississippi National Guard soldiers will be mobilized next year including a nine-month deployment to Kuwait. The soldiers from the Tupelo-based 155th Armored Brigade Combat Team will go to Fort Bliss, Texas, in the spring and then to Kuwait for Operation Spartan Shield to deter and react to possible threats in the Middle East. It will be the unit’s third deployment to the Middle East since 2001.
