Pre-mobilization training is about to begin for the Missouri Army National Guard’s 548th Transportation Company, led by the command team, Capt. Tyler Perkins and 1st Sgt. Shannon Andrews. The company left its home station in Trenton, Mo., on Thursday for four weeks of specialized training at Ft. Leonard Wood in preparation for deployment overseas later this spring. There are more than 150 Citizen-Soldiers receiving combat skills and weapons training. Once training is complete, the unit is planning a departure ceremony for some time in March.
