ARTICLE EXCERPT: On Nov. 5, the Flathead Valley men and women of the 495th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion gathered with their families and friends at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kalispell and said they were ready for active duty overseas.
These 60 Montana Army National Guard soldiers will head to Fort Hood, Texas, on Nov. 6 for six weeks of training and then a year in Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. They will provide sustainment and logistical command support to the theater of operation, or, as they like to say, “the muscle behind the punch.”
