829th Engineer Company, based out of Chippewa Falls, on its way to Afghanistan

Email
A National Guard unit from western Wisconsin will go to Afghanistan later this year. Major Paul Richert says the 829th Engineer Company from Chippewa Falls will dismantle U-S operating bases. They'll also make sure the enemy does not get its hands on anything valuable from those facilities. President Obama said in his State-of-the-Union speech that he'll declare an end to the war in Afghanistan by the end of 2014 -- although a small military force will remain there next year.
