Army National Guard
Cpl. Matthew T. Wall and Spec. Darrell S. Whitenack have been mobilized, activated and deployed to Kosovo as members of the U.S. Army contingent serving as part of the Multinational Brigade- East. The soldier will be assigned to Task Force Falcon at Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo.
Soldiers are part of a rotating NATO-U.S. task force that helps support the continuing Kosovo Peacekeeping Force (KFOR) mission after the crisis in Kosovo ceased in June 1999.
The NATO-led Kosovo Force helps maintain a safe and secure environment in the province and provide a security presence in villages, assists in resolving disputes, and works with international aid agencies to provide support for communities. The United States is one of 36 countries that participates in the NATO peacekeeping mission.
