National Guard Unit Moving From Streator

Posted by wlpo on September 9, 2010

A National Guard unit based in Streator is relocating.

Soon after a successful year long deployment in Iraq, the 1744th Transportation Company in Streator along with a unit in North Riverside were eliminated to reflect a changing mission overseas.  Now the 1744th is coming back but will be stationed in Crestwood.

170 members of the 1744th returned to Streator in September of 2007 after completing 200 missions in Iraq.  They suffered no casualties.
