Staff Reports Posted 14 March 2017 at 11:59 am

Major General Anthony P. German, the Adjutant General, announces the recent reenlistment of members of the State National Guard in recognition of their continuing commitment to serve community, state and nation as part of the Army National Guard.

• Sergeant Thomas Leggat of Albion reenlisted to continue service with the Company A, 2-108th Infantry.

• Sergeant First Class William Kelly of Holley reenlisted to continue service with the Company B (Maintenance), 427th Brigade Support Battalion.

• Specialist Joshua Brewer of Lyndonville reenlisted to continue service with the Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 2-101 Cavalry (Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition).

“New Yorkers count on our Citizen Soldiers to be ready and be there when disaster strikes,” German said. “And our nation counts on our soldiers when duty calls for overseas service. I congratulate our members for choosing to stay in service and striking that balance between military duties, education or employment commitments and family obligations.”

“Every one of the men and women serving in our 16,000 strong Army and Air National Guard plays an important role and these soldiers who continue to reenlist provide experience and continuity for whatever challenges lay ahead for our New York National Guard family.”
