Major General Ray Shields, the Adjutant General, announces the recent reenlistment of members of the State National Guard in recognition of their continuing commitment to serve community, state and nation as part of the Army National Guard.

Sergeant Brandon Vanwormer from Pulaski, reenlisted to continue service with the Forward Support Company, 204th Engineer Battalion.

Specialist Katrina Tafler from Oswego, reenlisted to continue service with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 427th Brigade Support Battalion.

Sergeant Nick Bonacorsi from Oswego, reenlisted to continue service with the Intelligence and Sustainment Company, 42nd Infantry Division.

Sergeant Christopher Elmer from Phoenix, reenlisted to continue service with the Medical Command.

“It’s great to see soldiers staying in the Army and continuing to serve their state and nation in the New York Army National Guard,” Shields said. “The most important Army asset we have is the individual soldier. The dedication, skills, and leadership traits they bring to our community and their employers are invaluable.”

“By choosing to stay in the Army National Guard they directly contribute to our nation’s security and to the governor’s ability to respond to disasters, all while building a bright future for their family through the guard’s retirement, education, and health insurance programs,” Shields said.
