CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The Colorado National Guard will conduct a troop movement in Colorado and Wyoming for annual training during the month of August.

In early August, Colorado Army National Guard Soldiers will travel from Colorado to Wyoming.

The units will train for up to two weeks before returning to home station.

The convoys will consist of both tactical and non-tactical vehicles.

“One of the Colorado National Guard’s top priorities is maintaining our national security mission capabilities, and training supports that objective,” Assistant Adjutant General, Army, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Douglas Paul said.  “While conducting training, we will take appropriate measures to protect the health of our Citizen Warriors, their families, and our neighbors in the COVID-19 environment.”

In July, COARNG units traveled from Colorado’s Western Slope to their home stations in Metro Denver and other communities.

These movements are part of units’ annual training to maintain strategic readiness and are not related to the CONG’s ongoing support to the state during the COVID-19 response.

The CONG is always ready, always there to defend the homeland, support the warfight, and build local and global partnerships.
