Governor Tony Evers say around 500 Wisconsin National Guard soldiers are headed to Washington, D-C to assist with the presidential inauguration. The troops and airmen are from several Wisconsin Army National Guard and Air Guard units. They will support security efforts next week alongside National Guard soldiers from other states. Evers said, “I’m confident these members of the Guard will assist in any way they can to help maintain peace and security in our nation’s capital in the days ahead.” Wisconsin soldiers were also mobilized for safety and security efforts this week at the State Capitol building in Madison.
