Ashland National Guard Ashland Spc. Jacob Dietz of Butternut (from left), Staff Sgt. Anthony Weber of Ashland and Sgt. Ryan Prellwitz stand before one of the unit’s heavy dump trucks. Ashland is sending 80 Guard members to the Middle East for perhaps a year.




Soldiers from the 829th Engineer Company undergo training prior to their deployment to Afghanistan in 2013, their most recent deployment.


Guard members have been undergoing Middle East-specific training during the past year since being notified that they were likely to be deployed to that part of the world.
