NH Governor Chris Sununu is heading to the Middle East later today.
He’s traveling to Kuwait to visit New Hampshire National Guardsmen deployed there.
The 3rd battalion, 197th Field Artillery Regiment, left in the spring to provide rocket and missile fire against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Iraq and Syria.
About 230 soldiers from the high mobility rocket system battalion are stationed in Kuwait. Fifty others are assigned elsewhere in the Middle East.
From Kuwait, the Governor will travel to Singapore to represent the state at the FIRST Global Challenge, an Olympic style robotics competition before making a final stop in Hawaii where he will participate in an event with the Hawaii Republican Party.
