“Ultimately, the CPT174 will help to enable commanders and leaders to seize, retain and exploit freedom of action in both the land and cyberspace domains, while simultaneously denying and degrading the adversary’s use of the same,” National Guard officials said in a news release.

The soldiers also come from North Dakota, South Dakota and Utah. They will be deployed for a year.
