Maj. Gen. Patrick A. Murphy, the adjutant general, announces the recent re-enlistment of members of the New York Army National Guard in recognition of their continuing commitment to serve community, state and nation as part of the Army National Guard.

Sgt. Robert Page from Niagara Falls has re-enlisted to continue service with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 27th Brigade Special Troops Battalion.

"The New York Army National Guard has sustained our force at or above 100 percent strength for the better part of seven years now," Murphy said. "Keeping those ready forces in our ranks mean that New York is ready to provide forces for state missions here at home, as we saw during the Buffalo Snow Emergency last year, Hurricane Sandy in 2012 or for sustaining our support to federal missions for our nation around the country and around the world."

He added, "Each of our 16,000 men and women serving in the Army and Air National Guard has an important role and I'm pleased that so many continue to re-enlist and remain part of our New York National Guard family."
