      I returned from Africa 14 months ago with the KSARNG. Another KS unit replaced us, and they were replaced earlier this year by a unit from TX. So if you're replacing a TX unit, then I can fill you in on what you may be doing. Depending on your rank and mos/skill sets, it could be a great deployment, or less-than-great.

          If this a NG deployment for at least 9 months or an exercise maneuver to last no more than 30 days?

            I was told told it was a mission. My unit was supposed to be in Afghanistan in Nov of last year but that was cancelled. I volunteered for Afghanistan with this unit but got sent to Kuwait... This mission to Africa seems to be a make up mission for the NY Guard Cav..

              An employee from my civilian job is in Africa (Liberia) on a mission and has been for quite a few months. Some soldiers from Michigan's Army National Guard will spend a year mentoring Liberian forces. American soldiers will help the Liberian army with everything from recruiting to combat tactics.

              Not sure if this is what you are speaking of, but it is Africa.

                It's a trail mix of missions. The SQD will be doing mostly force protection in Djibouti, but also military to military training. Some of the military to military are enduring missions, such as Liberia, but most are much shorter. The mentoring missions usually go to NCOs and officers. The lower enlisted were usually stuck doing force pro. Do a google search for Camp Lemonnier.

                    Please remember that these deployments aren't designed for the purpose of giving someone adventure or employment, but to accomplish a national security objective. National Guard Bureau will nominate a unit for mobilization to fill the mission, and your State will fill that unit if it has any gaps in the ranks. If you're concerned that it's inconvenient for you to get mobilized, that's because the system isn't designed for the convenience of the individual Soldier. It is possible for you to get exactly what you want out of this whole experience, although if you don't, it's not because the system is broken, it's because the system was never intended to do what you're asking it to do.
