Illinois National Guard Will Be Assigned to Assist with Transportation of Dignitaries Visiting Chicago for NATO Summit

Hundreds of Illinois National Guard soldiers will be deployed in Chicago during the NATO Summit May 20-21. The soldier will be assigned operations to help move foreign dignitaries around Chicago, and to assist with other unspecified duties.

A drill involving other Illinois National Guard troops will coincide with the NATO Summit time frame, but will occur outside Cook County, yet close enough to respond if reinforcements are needed to respond to issues that might arise.
