Members of the NY Army National Guard's 133rd Quartermaster Company Receive Combat Awards

Brooklyn Troops Receive Combat Awards from Iraq

The New York State Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Joseph Taluto, left, presents the Army Combat Action Badge to New York Army National Guard Spc. Armani Reid of the 133rd Quartermaster Company May 2 at the organization's Yellow Ribbon Reintegration weekend in Uniondale, Long Island.

The award, given to Soldiers who experience direct combat action overseas, was also presented to Sgt. Troy Coaxum, Spc. Jose Rivera, Spc. Ryan Lombardi and Spc. Nathaniel Doyley as the unit went on to review a variety of veterans' benefits and services during a forum throughout the afternooon.

Nearly 170 Soldiers and family members attended the weekend event, designed to help transition the Soldiers back to Citizens.

The unit mobilized in early March 2008 following an intensive annual training period in February 2008 to conduct individual Soldier training at Fort Dix to prepare for the unit's deployment to Iraq.

The company was responsible for several important sustainment operations at Al Asad. The unit managed a food distribution warehouse and fuel logistics yard, providing everything from food for the troops to fuel for convoys and helicopters. In addition, the Soldiers managed a water purification and distribution site.
