NY National Guard takes over training of Ukrainian troops

The Associated Press - November 22, 2017 11:42 am

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) – Army National Guard members from upstate New York are taking over the mission to train Ukrainian soldiers in their homeland.

The New York National Guard says 220 of its soldiers are taking over training duties from the Oklahoma National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team during a ceremony Wednesday at a Ukrainian military base.

The Guardsmen are from western and central New York, and many of the New Yorkers are assigned to the 2nd Squadron, 101st Cavalry, which has its headquarters at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.

The squadron also has troops based in Buffalo, Jamestown and Geneva.

Members of the Syracuse-based 27th Infantry Brigade Combat Team are also in Ukraine.

The group arrived in Ukraine on Nov. 11.
