Kentucky National Guard
More than 100 Soldiers with the Kentucky Army National Guard were recently activated to assist local communities following winter storms that dropped snow and ice throughout the Bluegrass State.
In eastern and southern Kentucky snowfall totals exceeded two feet and were combined with bitterly cold temperatures. With 93 of Kentucky’s 120 counties declaring emergencies, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear issued a state of emergency Feb. 16, and called on the Guard to assist.
