The South Dakota Army National Guard's 927th Survey and Design Team, of Sioux Falls, has received their official mobilization order for deployment to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
The 927th and its 14 assigned members are scheduled for deployment in July.
The mission of the 927th is to plan, conduct, prepare and provide planning studies and tests for identified engineer work projects. They also provide guidance, legal descriptions, certification and surveys for engineer projects.
The unit will report to Fort Bliss, Texas, to complete several weeks of theater-specific training prior to deployment overseas. This is the unit's first deployment.
