Jamestown Soldiers Will Not Be Mobilized

Posted: Updated:

Soldiers of the Jamestown-based 817th Engineer Company (Sapper) learned they will not be mobilized. This comes more than six months after being placed on alert for a potential mission to Afghanistan.

Last December, nearly 100 National Guard soldiers received an alert notification and began preparing for a potential Afghanistan mission. The mission, slated to begin next spring, was in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

"The soldiers of the 817th Engineer Company have proven their capabilities and dedication in numerous endeavors over the years, from natural disaster support to missions in Iraq," says  Major General David Sprynczynatyk. "I'm grateful for their service and their willingness to take part in yet another mission, but I'm also thankful that their families will no longer need to worry about spending a year apart from their soldiers. This is also good news for their employers, who have been instrumental in ensuring the mission success of our citizen-Soldiers."

The company last deployed from June 2007 until June 2008 and served in Iraq.
