The Wyoming Army National Guard will deploy 162 Soldiers from the 133rd Engineer Company, based in Laramie, Wyo., to Operation Enduring Freedom April 12th.

The unit’s deployment ceremony will be held at the University of Wyoming’s Arena-Auditorium April 11 at 3:30 p.m. Primary parking will be in the Ford Lot, on the east side of the football stadium. UW’s Transit and Parking department said it will not ticket in the area surrounding the Arena-Auditorium after 2:00 p.m. that day, with the exception of fire lanes, yellow zones and disability zones (for those without a disability sticker).

The unit received federal mobilization orders for 400 days to conduct base security operations in support of OEF.  The orders consist of more than a month of pre-deployment training at Camp Shelby, Miss.; followed by nine months in Bahrain. The period of active duty can change, based on the U.S. Army’s requirements.

Lt. Col. Joseph Huss, Wyoming Army National Guard mobilization officer, said, “This is the first non-engineering deployment in the unit’s history. They have been training extensively for more than a year in preparation for the mission and I know they will do an outstanding job on behalf of the Wyoming Army National Guard.” The 133rd’s last deployment was in November 2004 to Iraq, to perform engineer missions.
