Nevada National Guard unit to deploy soldiers to Europe

The Associated Press

Dozens of Nevada Army National Guard soldiers are set to deploy to eastern Europe for a year.

The 757th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion will send approximately 80 soldiers to Poland and nearby Baltic countries to provide logistical support for U.S. and partner nations, Guard officials said Tuesday.

A mobilization ceremony for the departing Nevada soldiers is planned Friday in Reno.

According to Guard officials, the Nevada soldiers will be responsible for command and control of a wide wage of supply operations supporting deployment and redeployment operations collectively known as Operation Atlantic Resolve.

Army officials say Operation Atlantic Resolve sends thousands of U.S. troops on months-long to Europe to demonstrate U.S. support for NATO allies.
