11/30/2018- A send-off ceremony was held yesterday for the 400 Wisconsin National Guard soldiers preparing for a year-long deployment, including some from Marinette. The 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry are headed to Afghanistan to conduct a security mission for coalition forces operating in the region. While the unit is headquartered in Appleton, it also has companies in Green Bay, Fond du Lac, and Marinette. While they’ve deployed several times since 9/11, this is the unit’s first tour of Afghanistan.
