Governor Honors Soldiers Preparing for Year Long Deployment

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine  honored approximately 160 Soldiers from the 1487th Transportation Company, based in Piqua, Ohio, as they prepared to depart for a yearlong deployment in support of U.S. Central Command operations.

 

While deployed, the unit will provide transportation assets and support to various units throughout its area of responsibility. The 1487th, nicknamed the “Iron Camels,” has previously deployed, most recently in 2012-2013.

 

The ceremony was held at the Piqua High School over the weekend.
