Hawaii Army National Guard Units Set to Deploy in 2018/2019

August 10, 2017

The Hawaii Army National Guard (HIARNG) has just been notified by the Department of Defense about upcoming unit deployments to the Central and European Command’s areas of operation starting in the spring of 2018. A total of six units and approximately 1000 soldiers have received a Notification of Sourcing (NOS) which includes two aviation units from the 103rd Troop Command and elements from the 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT).

NOS requirements are generated by a Combatant Commander (CENTCOM, PACOM, EUCOM, etc.) based upon operational needs. For the Army, United States Forces Command (FORSCOM) will delegate the requirement to an Army Component (Army Active Duty, Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserves) to identify a unit to fulfill the requirement.  Units are selected based upon readiness levels and timing within a readiness model.

It is not guaranteed that every unit named on a NOS list will be alerted to mobilize and then deploy.

The units named in the NOS are:
