“Getting back to you with a little bit about our unit, where we are based out of, and our recent activity.
I am currently attached to detachment 1 Alpha Company 1-224th S&S Battalion (Security and Support) based out of Latham, New York. I have been part of the unit for a little over a year and a half now. We are an aviation heavy unit utilizing the UH-72A Lakota. Our units major purpose is to provide air support for local law enforcement, neighboring units, and federal law enforcement (specifically the DEA). We are a counter drug unit and operate heavily during “growing season” in hopes of controlling illegal distribution and growth of Marijuana. We provide this type of support nation wide. Most recently we were stationed in Marana Arizona as part of the ongoing border mission that goes on in that part of the country. While deployed we provided air support for “Task Force Raven” and worked along side of U.S Customs and Border Protection in hopes of stopping illegal immigrants from crossing over into the United States. During out four month mobilization we were able to secure in and around 10.2 million dollars worth of marijuana from illegals attempting enter the country. We appreciate the support the chive has for the military and we give it all back ten fold. I personally love what you guys do.
