Hoosier National Guardsmen are set for overseas deployment

Approximately 45 Indiana National Guardsmen with the 939th Military Police Detachment, headquartered at Tyndall Armory in Indianapolis, will hold a departure ceremony, 11 a.m. Thursday, June 25, at the Camp Atterbury Railhead Processing Center, building 3011, to honor and commemorate the deployment of National Guard soldiers.

The company is led by Capt. Matthew Madden, of Fishers, and Sgt. 1st Class Kevin Herr from Avon. The unit will perform law and order operations in Qatar.

Since February 2019, the soldiers have been completing premobilization training. Training has consisted of, but not limited to, the law of war, suicide awareness and prevention, resiliency training, weapons qualification, non-lethal weapons training, patrol operations, traffic accidents, and basic soldier tasks. Upon their departure from Indiana, they will report to Fort Bliss, Texas, for approximately 25 days of law and order training.

Due to the current health protection contingency the ceremony is reserved for guests of the deploying soldiers.
