Army Guard Command hosts Lander community meeting

CHEYENNE – Community leaders, members and civilian employers of Wyoming National Guard members in the Fremont County area are invited to a community meeting with Army Guard command in Lander Feb. 1.

The 4 p.m. meeting will be held at the Wyoming Army National Guard readiness center in Lander, 31 Leedy Lane.

Command will discuss the upcoming deployments and programs in place to assist Guard members, their families and civilian employers throughout the deployment cycle.

“Building partnerships with our communities and guardsmen’s employers helps to ensure we can answer our nation’s call and deploy abroad,” said Brig. Gen. Brian Nesvik, Wyoming Army National Guard commander. “Expectations of our state’s Citizen Soldiers have increased over time and it is critical for community leaders and employers to understand those increased demands and how important their support continues to be.”

Additional meetings will be held in February and March in Sheridan, Casper, Cheyenne, Gillette, and Laramie.
