Vermont Army National Guard Soldier Volunteers for Deployment in Poland
CAMP KOSCIUSZKO, POLAND —
Soldiers who actively seek additional deployment opportunities often do so for various reasons. For U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. Andrew Campagne, Vermont Army National Guard, the reason was simple.
“I honestly like being on active duty.” Campagne explained, “Throughout my time in the National Guard I’ve always volunteered for deployments or State Partnership Program missions. I was on the Task Force Avalanche 21 deployment to Saudi Arabia, and while there, I was trolling for another deployment on the Tour of Duty website. I applied for a position as Operations Sgt. Maj. with V Corps in Poland, and I got a phone call from the V Corps Command Sergeant Major, and two months later I was here.”
