A departure ceremony for the 126th Medical Evacuation Unit of the National Guard will be held on Wednesday at the Quonset Air National Guard Base in North Kingstown. Rhode Island National Guard Public Affairs Specialist Megan Burmeister says the ceremony is occurring before the unit is deployed in Kuwait.

"They're a Rhode Island unit and they're going to be deployed as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. They'll be deployed as part of a medical evacuation asset for Army Central in Kuwait."
