Stewart National Guard supporting hurricane relief a second time

STEWART ANG – Air National Guardsmen from the 105th Airlift Wing at Stewart Airport have been deployed in response to Hurricane Irma relief.

Personnel deployed a satellite communications system with a team of seven aboard a C-17 cargo aircraft. The mission to Mississippi on Sunday is part of the Irma response and support to the Florida National Guard.

The Joint Incident Site Communications Capability allows the airmen to rapidly set up Internet, voice over IP and other communications capabilities during natural and manmade disasters.

In recent days, the 105th AW flew missions in support of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
