BISMARCK โ€” A North Dakota National Guard unit has been alerted for possible mobilization to the U.S. Central Command area of operations sometime in late summer 2023.

About six soldiers from the Bismarck-based Detachment 7, Company C, 2nd Battalion, 245th Aviation Regiment, are expected to be deployed for up to one year. The unit operates a C-12 Huron aircraft that provides transportation of personnel and light cargo, according to a press release from the North Dakota National Guard.

"Our Army aviation soldiers are professional and well trained with an exceptional safety record," said Brig. General Jon Erickson, commander of the North Dakota Army National Guard, in the release. "I remain grateful for the outstanding support provided by our families, employers and communities."

Detachment 7 served in the Horn of Africa from August 2018 until June 2019, according to the release.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
