A Nebraska Army National Guard brigade is holding town hall meetings in several cities to help prepare families, employers and community leaders for an upcoming mobilization.

A Guard news release says there are about 750 Guardsmen assigned

The brigade has set meetings Oct. 22 in Grand Island, Oct. 29 in
Nebraska City, Nov. 5 in North Platte, Nov. 9 in Omaha, Nov. 12 in
Lincoln and Nov. 19 in Hastings.

The brigade commander, Col. Philip Stemple, says he and his aides want to address any concerns early, before an expected call-up next summer.
