Wisconsin National Guard Sent to Puerto Rico

A mobile kitchen and 16 Airmen from the Wisconsin Air National Guard are on their way to Puerto Rico to lend support in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which impacted the U.S. in recent weeks. Both the 115th Fighter Wing, based in Madison, and the 128th Air Refueling Wing in Milwaukee sent personnel to operate the Wisconsin Air National Guard’s Disaster Relief Mobile Kitchen Trailer (DRMKT) to support the response in Puerto Rico. The deployment is the latest in the state’s ongoing response to hurricanes that have affected the U.S. over the past month, as the Guard continues to operate under Gov. Scott Walker’s executive order authorizing Maj. Gen. Don Dunbar to call on Wisconsin National Guard troops to assist as needed.
