MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 34th Red Bull Infantry Division was set to help the U.S. military in containing the Ebola virus in the west African nation.
Since the number of those infected with the virus has dropped dramatically, there’s no need for the national guard’s support. Spokesman Kevin Smith said there is some relief among the soldiers and their families.
“First and foremost it is a relief for the Liberian people. For our soldiers, there is some level of relief for their families,” Smith said.
The original mission was for 700 guardsmen and later reduced to 300.
