CENTENNIAL, Colo. (5/1/10) – The Colorado National Guard, friends and family will bid farewell to Company G, 2nd Battalion, 135th General Support Aviation, during a ceremony at the Army Aviation Support Facility on Buckley Air Force Base.
An air ambulance company provides rapid evacuation of injured and wounded servicemembers and civilians from the battlefield to a medical treatment facility.
Company G, an air ambulance unit, will spend several weeks at Fort Hood, Texas, training on specific theater training requirements as well as language and culture prior to departing to southern Iraq.
This new unit has been training for the deployment since it stood up in early March.
“We are all excited and ready to get our training over so we can get started on our mission. Once you get going full-bore, it’s a tough job, but it is one of the most rewarding ones in the Army,” said Capt. Bryan Munsch, Company G commander. “Being able to serve others is why I joined the Guard.”
