R.I. Guard to help patrol nation's border
PROVIDENCE -- Governor Carcieri is expected to attend a farewell ceremony for Rhode Island Air National Guard troops this morning at T.F. Green Airport.
About 40 members of the 281st Combat Communications Group are scheduled to leave today for New Mexico to help patrol the nation's border. They will be deployed for three weeks.
The Rhode Island Air National Guard will help develop a communications plan for New Mexico that fits into a national plan linking the four states on the nation's border with Mexico.
It is the Rhode Island Guard's first assignment on the southwest border.
