Utah Guard bids farewell to more than 230 Soldiers of 2nd Battalion, 211th Aviation as they deploy from West Jordan to the Middle East. Utah citizen-Soldiers serving all of us, to protect our way of life and promote safety and security for all. War Horse on mission!!!
We said goodbye to nearly 100 of our soldiers as they deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Spartan Shield.
"The mission that we have been given is full of opportunity," said Capt. Jared Sorensen, commander Echo Battery. "An opportunity to become better trained, better educated, and stronger both physically and mentally."
We look forward to give you all a warrior's welcome when you return home!
