New York Army National Guard Sgt. Kizzy Blake speaks with New York State Dept. of Labor representative Rod Donnelly at the National Guard's Yellow Ribbon Reintegration event May 2 in Uniondale, Long Island.
The event hosted members of the New York Army National Guard's 133rd Quartermaster Company, providing nearly 170 Soldiers and family members with information about benefits and services for the returning Iraq war veterans.
The Reintegration Program is 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.
