The 160 soldiers will perform security operations as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. "It's a pretty awesome occasion to have everyone here," Lt. Fredrick Yebuah said. "We have our traditional families with us but we also have our military family which is, which is nice to see their support." The 514th will be deployed for about ten months. These men and women have previously been called to State Active Duty missions for Hurricane Matthew and the 2016 Charlotte Riots.
So whats going on in Gitmo with $19 million to expand the War Court at Guantanamo Bay, and now with 160 North Carolina Guardsman now being deployed for a tour of Gitmo? Well this is the 2nd major military deployment to Gitmo in the last year under President Trump and there really hasn't been many reports of detainees going into Gitmo under President Trump...As Obama pretty much cleared out Gitmo before Obama left the Oval Office.
However lets put two together, National Guardsman being deployed to Gitmo when the US NAVY alongside the Pentagon have placed $19 million for the expansion of Gitmo's War Court...Does it sound like Gitmo is about to gain a lot of detainees through Military Tribunals. Well put these two Gitmo reports together and that may just be the case. Something is definitely going on at Gitmo with the expansion of the War Court along with this very recent deployment of 160 NC Guardsman.
