OKLAHOMA CITY -- About 30 members with the 205th Engineering Installation Squadron and the 219th Electronics Engineering and Radar Installation Squadron, Oklahoma Air National Guard, will deploy to Southwest Asia in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Under this partial mobilization, these airmen have been called to active duty for about six months.
The members will support forward deployed units by installing and upgrading satellite communications, fiber optic and copper wiring solutions, Internet networks, paging systems, ground-to-air communications, computer design drawings and mapping services.
The majority of deploying members are traditional Guardsmen from across the state, including Oklahoma City and Tulsa Metro areas, who have civilian careers.
