LANSING, Michigan — Michigan Army National Guard engineers are in Africa helping to improve living conditions for Liberian soldiers.
The Gladstone-based 1430th Engineer Co. last week began work on a project that will result in the construction of a series of new barracks buildings. The guard is entering its fifth year of state partnership with Liberia.
This was the first time Michigan Guard members have flown large refueling tankers to the Liberian base. Rotations of engineers are expected to continue to Liberia off and on through February.
