250 of Indiana’s National Guard soldiers will be staying in Washington D.C. through March.
The troops were deployed by Governor Holcomb on January 13 as part of a force of 25 thousand from across the country called up to protect the Inauguration. This was in response to the January 6 insurrection attempt at the Capitol.
More than 400 men and women of the Indiana National Guard returned to the Hoosier State on Monday. Those who remain in Washington D.C. will serve there until the end of March.
