NY Army National Guard MPs Head to Long Island Aug. 28, 2011
NEW YORK CITY -- A convoy of the New York Army National Guard’s 206th Military Police Company heads to Long Island to conduct disaster recovery operations in the wake of Hurricane Irene on Aug. 28.

The Latham-based unit is just part of the nearly 2,000 Soldiers and airmen New York Governor Andrew Cuomo mobilized in response to the expected landfall of the hurricane Irene, which caused deaths and destruction in other states.

Soldiers and Airmen deployed to Long Island, New York City, and the Hudson Valley to assist with traffic control on bridges and tunnels, sandbagging operations at the World Trade Center site, evacuation shelter operations in New York City, the construction of barriers for railway yards and train tunnels, and other hurricane emergency efforts.

Soldiers and other New York military forces who were staged at the Lexington Avenue Armory on Aug. 27 have been posted at New York City shelters to assist the American Red Cross and emergency personnel with potential storm victims.
