Army National Guard
A Baltimore National Guardsman is killed in Afghanistan as violent demonstrations rock the country. The unrest is now in its sixth day. It all stems from the burning of Muslim holy books on an American airfield.
More than three dozen Maryland troops are headed to Afghanistan Friday night.
More than 400 Maryland National Guardsmen and their families are learning a hard lesson: not all deployments are equal.
As more and more Maryland troops are called to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, there’s a special group of soldiers trained to offer support from home.
