Michigan Army National Guard Deployments Announced

A number of Army National Guard soldiers, from across the state, are being called to active duty and are expected to serve for up to one year.


Approximately 180 Army National Guard soldiers from Kingsford, Menominee and Pontiac, Mich., received word that they will mobilize, together, as the 1775th Military Police Company. The MPs arrived yesterday and today at the Pontiac armory for initial in-processing. They are expected to depart for their mobilization station at Fort McCoy, Wis., sometime next week. Their final destination has not yet been confirmed.

Guardsmen from Sault Ste. Marie, Midland and Jackson are also in the process of receiving active duty orders.


The 1437th Engineer Company, Sault Ste. Marie will report to Camp Grayling, Mich., on January 22 for initial processing. They are then expected to depart for their mobilization station at Fort Campbell, Ky., on January 26. This call-up involves approximately 180 Michigan Guard soldiers. Their final destination has not yet been confirmed.


The 1460th Transportation Company from Midland and additional soldiers from the 1461st Transportation Company, Jackson, will also depart for initial in-processing at Camp Grayling on January 22. The approximately 140 soldiers are then expected to depart for their mobilization station at Fort McCoy, Wis., on January 26. Their final destination has not yet been confirmed.


On Monday, January 27, approximately 70 soldiers from the 126th Armor Battalion, headquartered in Wyoming, Mich., with units stationed in Manistee, Cadillac, South Haven, Dowagiac and Three Rivers, will report to Fort Custer, near Battle Creek, Mich., for four days of in-processing. From there, they report to the Armor Battalion’s headquarters (Wyoming, Mich.), for a February 1 departure to their mobilization station at Fort McCoy, Wis. After approximately one week of in-processing and additional training, the 126th will report to the Selfridge Air National Guard Base, in Mount Clemens, Mich., and the Battle Creek Air National Guard Base, to provide security there. They are replacing soldiers and airmen, many of whom have been on duty for more than a year.


Meanwhile, approximately 300 soldiers from the 144th Military Police Company, Owosso, Mich., and the 1776th Military Police Company, Taylor, Mich., are expected to return home in mid-February after providing security at military installations in the Washington D.C. area for one year.


One other Military Police unit, the 210th Military Police Battalion, also from Taylor, with approximately 60 soldiers, is nearly six months into their expected one year deployment in Washington D.C.


The 745th Ordnance Company, from Grayling, Mich., was called-up in December to back-fill active duty Army soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, who have been deployed. The 22 member unit is expected to be deployed for one year.


The Michigan Army National Guard has approximately 8,800 members, in 119 units across the state.
