Tennessee Army Guard’s 230th Signal Company to Deploy

 

Tennessee Military DepartmentNashville, TN – The Nashville-based 230th Signal Company of the Tennessee Army National Guard is scheduled to deploy about 150 Soldiers from the Volunteer Training Site in Smyrna Tennessee on Thursday, July 21st, at 3:00pm.

The unit will first be mobilizing the Soldiers to Fort Bliss, before they deploy to Afghanistan. Part of the unit will first go to Iraq before Afghanistan, then meet up with the majority of the unit later in the year.

“One of the important things about this unit is that it is the only Army National Guard unit of its kind in the country,” said Capt. Stephen Haley, 230th Signal Co. Commander. “We specialize in network infrastructure and are highly specialized in fiber optics and network capabilities.”

“There are only four units that do this in the entire Army,” he added, “Two active duty, one reserve, and us.”
