Miller National Guard Unit To Be Honored For Relocation To WatertownBy
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Army National Guard is hosting a ceremony Sunday to honor a unit that is being relocated. The ceremony is set to honor the unit from Miller. Soldiers from Miller’s Detachment 2, Company A, 139th Brigade Support Battalion, will conduct their drill training in Redfield for several months before moving to Watertown once a Readiness Center is completed. The unit’s relocation is the result of federal budget cuts, U.S. Army restructuring and the opening of the new Regional Readiness Center. Sunday’s ceremony is scheduled for 12 p.m. at the National Guard armory in Rapid City. Major General Tim Reisch is the featured speaker.
