FORT SNELLING -- Soldiers in the 367th Engineer Battalion have been called to active duty in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
The 367th Engineer Battalion is headquartered in St. Cloud, with companies in Brainerd, Duluth, Mankato and a detachment in Fergus Falls.
The battalion's reserve mission is to provide support for combat units with mobility, counter mobility and survivability assets. The 367th Engineer Battalion also provides support to companies through food service, supply, maintenance, personnel and a construction platoon that consists of carpenters, masons, plumbers, electricians, surveyors and draftsmen.
The 367th Engineer Battalion is the single largest Army Reserve unit to mobilize in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Noble Eagle and Iraqi Freedom in Minnesota. To help the soldiers and their families prepare for mobilization, the 367th Engineer Battalion will conduct Family Readiness Briefings.
Family members of the 367th Engineer Battalion, Company A, will have a family readiness briefing from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the American Legion on Front Street in Brainerd.
The family readiness briefing is designed to help the soldiers and their families navigate through issues that have come up in past mobilizations. More important, the briefing lets the soldiers and their families know how to avoid potential problems and how to deal with any problems that come up.
For more information, call Staff Sgt. Chris Farley at (612) 713-3274 or (612) 290-0527. More information on the 367th Engineer Battalion is available online at www.usarc.army.mil/88thrsc/644_asg/367_en/.
