Women in the Vietnam War

We never hear much about the women that served during the Vietnam war.

Women in the Vietnam War served as soldiers, health workers, and in news-gathering capacities. Though relatively little official data exists about female

HAPPY 384TH BIRTHDAY NATIONAL GUARD ! THANK YOU FOR SERVING !! "Always ready, always there ! "
The official birth date of the Army National Guard as a reserve component of the Army is December 13, 1636. On this date, the Massachusetts colonial legislature directed that the colony's existing militia companies be organized into three regiments.

A Veteran’s family members or friends may be the first to notice when the person they love has changed. These changes could be a sign of a larger health concern...

Remembering the Gulf War - Operation Desert Storm

15 August 1990
C+8

Air Order of Battle: The last of the B-52s arrive at Diego Garcia completing its planned full strength.

Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 369 (HMLA-369), comprising the first Marine Aircraft Group 70 (MAG-70) aircraft, arrives in theater.

Ground Order of Battle: The 82nd Airborne Division’s Ready Brigade is on the ground and preparing for combat, while 7th Marine Expeditionary Brigade lead elements have arrived to prepare for reception of five Maritime Pre-positioned Squadron two ships that arrived at Jubayl with Marine M-60A1 tanks, the first heavy U.S. armored vehicles to reach the AOR and enough supplies to sustain the 16,500- person force for 30 days.

Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps announced the commitment of 45,000 troops to the Persian Gulf area. This deployment consisted of elements of the I Marine Expeditionary Force including units from 1st Marine Division and 1st Force Service Support Group (FSSG), 3d Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), and 7th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB). Also enroute were elements of the 4th MEB including units from 2d Marine Division, 2d FSSG, and 2d MAW. On arrival in Saudi Arabia, the 7th MEB linked up with Maritime Pre-Positioning Ship Squadron 2 (MPS-2), dispatched from its normal anchorage at Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. The five-ship squadron contained 7th MEB's equipment and enough supplies to sustain the 16,500- person force for 30 days.

Ultimately, the Marines would comprise a portion of the approximately 200,000 U.S. ground troops.

Logistics: Apparently referring to the expanding scale of deployment planning, USCINCCENT reports that “airlift requirements through C+40 have averaged double the USTRANSCOM delivery capability.

For the first time in history, the entire United States strategic airlift capability is committed world wide - seventy-three percent of C-141 and ninety-three percent of C-5 missions are committed to Desert Shield.

Sealift requirements will result in activation of a total of twenty-seven Ready Reserve Fleet ships.

USNS Bellatrix sails from Savannah, GA; equipment from 1st Brigade, 24th Infantry Division task force.

Planning: NATO gives USEUCOM blanket authority to move US equipment and forces from Europe to support Desert Shield.

Other activities: CJCS provides psychological operations guidance in support of Desert Shield. National level emphasis is placed on gaining support of Arab nations for US actions and to isolate both Iraq and Saddam Hussein.

June 6, 1944

76 years ago, a 20 year old Paratrooper in the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division was making his first combat jump. This man, my grandfather, Thomas Arrey, was the man that took me to a recruiter 32 years ago. I would like to thank him and all of the others that participated in D-Day. Their heroic efforts helped saved the world from a horrible fate.

Thomas Arrey served in and retired from the New Mexico National Guard. He is part of our Legacy of Honor. SIEMPRE ADELANTE! AIRBORNE!
