Approximately 45 soldiers of Company G, 2nd Battalion, 135th Aviation Regiment, Kansas National Guard, will be honored during a deployment ceremony Monday, Nov. 4 at the Topeka Army Aviation Flight Support Facility, Gary Ormsby Drive and “J” Street, Forbes Field, Topeka. The ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer and Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, Kansas adjutant general, will speak at the ceremony.

“When a soldier is injured, getting him proper medical treatment as soon as possible is vital,” said Maj. Gen.

We are immensely proud of them and the total commitment they give to their mission.”

The soldiers will depart for their mobilization station at Fort Hood, Texas, for additional mission-specific training before deploying to Afghanistan.

Their mission will consist of providing aeromedical evacuation support within the division and corps under the command and control of the General Support Aviation Battalion. They will also be providing the rapid evacuation and movement of patients while providing en-route care to higher echelons of medical treatment, movement of medical personnel and accompanying medical equipment and supplies, consistent with evacuation priorities and operational considerations, to and from points as far forward as possible.
