The Wisconsin National Guard is getting ready to send almost 100 soldiers to the Middle East before the winter ends. The guard says 60 members of Madison’s 147th Aviation unit will go to Kuwait to provide helicopter airlifts and maintenance support. About 35 members of 168th Aviation unit of West Bend head to Afghanistan to provide aerial medevac services and maintenance help for aircraft. Parts of both units have made multiple foreign deployments since the September eleventh terrorist attacks of 2001.
