The military cuts known as “BRAC” resulted in many programs moving to Maryland. But, as part of that realignment, eight large cargo planes were taken away from the Maryland Air National Guard. But there is now a replacement plane.

While events commemorating the tenth anniversary of 9/11 continue, members of Maryland’s National Guard are headed for Afghanistan.
As 124 Maryland National Guardsmen scrambled to get into formation, it was with the knowledge they are leaving their civilian lives and families for the next year.

The Maryland National Guard will rename a training area for a fallen soldier.
