More than 70 Connecticut National Guard members have left for a nearly year-long deployment. The Danbury-based 142nd Area Support Medical Company departed Sunday to support Operation Atlantic Resolve. They'll provide medical support to U.S. and allied troops. The unit will report to Texas for premobilization training before traveling to Poland. The is the first time the unit has deployed in about 10 years and will be the first overseas deployment for many members. Governor Ned Lamont says the men and women of the Connecticut National Guard have been providing support to the state throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and to have them now deploying overseas to provide medical support to our international partners shows the dedication and professionalism that they carry themselves with.
