CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Colorado National Guard members are preparing to deploy from Buckley Air Force Base, Aurora, to Puerto Rico, with a mobile kitchen to help civil authorities save lives and relieve suffering in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

The 140th Wing, Colorado Air National Guard, will provide a 15-person team and a trailer-based mobile kitchen, capable of feeding up to 1,000 people within 90 minutes.

“This Colorado National Guard capability will greatly assist responders in the aftermath of this disaster," said the Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Michael Loh. “Our Colorado warriors will help provide quality meals to sustain life and build morale.”

The Colorado National Guard stands ready for follow-on requests, while continuing to protect our communities, state and nation and to support worldwide contingency operations.
