Local soldiers re-enlist with Army National Guard

Sgt. Hannah Peterson, of Newark, and Spc. Alison Isler, of Ontario, recently re-enlisted to continue service with the New York Army National Guard.

Peterson serves with the 222nd Military Police Company. Isler is continuing with the Company E, 3-126th Aviation.

“The most important Army asset we have is the individual soldier,” said Maj. Gen. Ray Shields, the adjutant general. “The dedication, skills and leadership traits they bring to our community and their employers are invaluable. By choosing to stay in the Army National Guard, they directly contribute to our nation's security and to the governor's ability to respond to disasters.”
