Sgt. Chris Vinderslev: Interview

Sgt. Chris Vinderslev of the 134th Brigade Support Battalion with the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 34th Infantry Division of the Minnesota National Guard talks about his responsibilities with the unit during the deployment, housing the transient Soldiers passing through the camp and his feelings on the draw down. The Minnesota National Guard has played a significant role in the war in Iraq. Since 2003, more than 8,000 Minnesota National Guard Citizen Soldiers and Airmen have been deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and operation New Dawn. Today, more than 2,700 members of the Minnesota National Guard are currently deployed in Kuwait, and are providing security for remaining convoys as they withdraw from Iraq, in addition to managing and protecting the military bases throughout Kuwait. Through the professionalism of the Soldiers and support of their hometown communities, employers, and families, the Minnesota National Guard completed all missions in Iraq with success and honor.
