Pre-Deployment_Training_on_rangeExecution and support of the largest deployment of Vermont Army National Guard soldiers since WW II has been the training focus for 2010.  Approximately 1,500 VTARNG soldiers from all corners of the state are participating in a year-long tour of Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).  Task Force Warrior, the BDE’s stay behind element, has been busy assisting the families of deployed soldiers.


C/3-126th AVN is currently at their mobilization station in FT Hood, Texas in preparation for a year in Iraq.

The OSA Detachment and a portion of our public affairs detachment are preparing for mobilization.

In our other major commands, training for Defense Support to Civilian Authorities (DSCA) has been exemplary as they shoulder responsibilities that had previously belonged to the BDE. Planning for the return of the IBCT is underway, with the focus on demobilization and reset occupying the major commands and staff sections’ efforts. 


The joint staff has completed a catastrophic exercise as the culminating training event in TY-10. In conjunction with local, state, and federal agencies, this showcased our ability to step forward and meet our commitments to our neighbors, regardless of the number of soldiers who are serving our Nation overseas.

Pre-Deployment_Training_in_vehicleFY10 Vermont Army National Guard (VTARNG) funding was sufficient to support State and Federal missions.  The fiscal environment remained challenging due to required reliance and tracking of OCO (Overseas Contingency Operations) funding actions at the national level, and subsequent impacts at the state level.  The VTARNG supported all statutory requirements, and achieved all major objectives and missions through Program Budget Advisory Committee (PBAC) action and efficient use of financial resources.
