DULUTH, MN -- More than 130 soldiers with the Duluth-based 148th Fighter Wing and the 1-94th Cavalry Squadron will provide support at President-Elect Joe Biden's inauguration next Wednesday.
The soldiers will report to Washington D.C. this week to assist local units, according to the Minnesota National Guard.
The Minnesota National Guard’s 133rd Airlift Wing will provide transportation to the Soldiers.
“National security events, like the Inauguration, require rotational support from across the country to be successful,” said Colonel Scott Rohweder, Minnesota National Guard
Director of Operations.
Minnesota National Guard officials say they've sent as a few as zero and as many as 350 guardsman to support the inauguration in the past.
