Re-enlistmed Running High in Kentucky National Guard

Frankfort, KY – The possibility of wartime deployments for hundreds of
Kentucky National Guard soldiers and airmen is not
discouraging re-enlistments. Officials say about
93 percent of those eligible to leave the Guard in the
past eighteen months have instead opted to re-enlist.

Major General Donald Storm says the Guard has added
a net gain of about two hundred troops since December.
Kentucky's Adjutant General adds that there are just over
62 hundred members of the Kentucky National Guard and
1164 in the Kentucky Air National Guard.
