tinue to play a pivotal role in the next millenium for the national security,” Congressman Franks said.
The New Jersey National Guard was mobilized in September during Floyd’s fury. They were called from home and work and were told to drop whatever you’re doing and come to the Westfield Armory. There, they reviewed the situation in Bound Brook and Manville, since the Raritan River had flooded 19 feet over its capacity, according to New Jersey National Guard Major Kevin Haggerty.
“We were called to recover and to assist in the evacuation process and to also offer security during the emergency crisis. It was tough work, but a lot of courage was demonstrated through this difficult recovery,” Major Haggerty said.
The National Guard also assisted in the local shelters in Bound Brook and Manville as residents waited out the storm.
“I was in the shelter translating and trying to calm the people down.
One particular boy stood out in mind from that time. He just turned 13 when I saw him at the shelter. He grabbed my attention, because he was helping everybody. Then I noticed he wasn’t smiling and I asked him why he was sad and he replied that it was his birthday.
“He said that all his mother could give him was a hug and a kiss since his family had lost everything. With some of my workers, we had a cake and balloons donated from the local supermarket and we surprised him,” National Guard Specialist Marysol Carrasquillo said.
The 250th Signal Battalion provides mobile cellular communications for the 42nd Infantry Division. It is a unique unity in New Jersey, with extremely high technological skills required to operate and to maintain the network. The unit is based in Westfield, with subordinate units in Cherry Hills and Flemington and it is commanded by Lieutenant Colonel William Campbell.
