More than a thousand members of the Missouri Army and Air National Guard are heading to Louisiana and Mississippi to help in the recovery from Hurricane Katrina. Adjutant General King Sidwell says the deployment will not affect the Missouri Guard’s ability to help with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This group will help with security. Another group of about 500 is expected to leave in the next few weeks to aid in the repair of infrastructure damaged by Katrina.
