The newest Citizen Soldiers to complete Army basic combat training and advanced individual training were welcomed to their units during a New York Army National Guard battle handoff ceremony April 9, 2017.

Pfc. Patrick Fisk from Paul Smiths, was formally welcomed into the Company B, 2-108th Infantry during a transition ceremony at the Queensbury Readiness Center.
