National Guard infantry units support East Africa mission
CAMP LEMONNIER, Djibouti —
Throughout history, the U.S. Army National Guard’s 1-102nd Infantry Regiment (Mountain) and the 1-116th Infantry Regiment have fought alongside and even against one another. From the Revolutionary War to the Civil War and reuniting during WWI, the two battalions have once again met, this time in Africa, passing the torch of responsibility for the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa’s (CJTF-HOA) security forces mission.
