New York Army National Guard soldier reenlistments
LATHAM — Major General Ray Shields, the Adjutant General, announces the recent reenlistment of members of the State National Guard in recognition of their continuing commitment to serve community, state and nation as part of the Army National Guard.
Staff Sergeant Gene Whitaker from Fredonia reenlisted to continue service with the Combat Engineer Company B, 152nd Brigade Engineer Battalion.
Sergeant First Class Olden Ingram from Dunkirk reenlisted to continue service with the Troop A, 2-101 Cavalry (Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition).
“It’s great to see Soldiers staying in the Army and continuing to serve their State and Nation in the New York Army National Guard,” Shields said. “The most important Army asset we have is the individual Soldier. The dedication, skills, and leadership traits they bring to our community and their employers are invaluable.”
