Shelby Sargent re-enlists in National Guard
Sergeant Shelby Sargent from Albion has re-enlisted to continue service with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 427th Brigade Support Battalion. Major General Anthony P. German, the Adjutant General, announced Sargent’s recent re-enlistment in the Army National Guard.
“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.”
The New York National Guard (New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs) is the state’s executive agency responsible to the Governor for managing New York’s Military Forces, which consists of nearly 20,000 members of the New York Army National Guard, the New York Air National Guard, the New York Naval Militia and the New York Guard.
“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 re-enlist provide experience and continuity for whatever challenges lay ahead for our New York National Guard family,” German said.
