Vermont Army National Guard has received an order for a possible mobilization
in early 2010. Adjutant
General Michael Dubie says members of the 86th Mountain Brigade
could be called up to active duty. He says he notified them and their families
through an e-mail.
Meg Mitchell is the forest
supervisor for the Green Mountain National Forest Supervisor. Chad van Ormer is Recreation Planner for the National Forest. They spoke with VPR’s Jane Lindholm about how changes are being implemented in the Green Mountain National Forest management plan.
A group of lawmakers is calling on Governor Jim Douglas to
end the deployment of roughly 25 Vermont National Guard troops serving in Iraq.
They say President Bush’s authority to use these troops has expired.
But the governor says a review by his office shows that
the President’s authority is legal.
