FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Members of the Indiana National Guard will be in Washington on Friday helping with the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2jVennK) that about 150 Indiana guard members will attend, including more than 130 military police from Terre Haute-based 81st Troop Command stationed at rail stations. They will help local police with crowd control and other security efforts.

Indiana’s contingent also includes three members of the Air National Guard’s 122nd Fighter Wing based. Two of them will work documenting the inauguration events, including news releases, social media posts and escorting news media. The Fort Wayne base’s public affairs superintendent, Master Sgt. Darin Hubble of Ossian, already is in Washington for that role.

A third fighter wing member will help with air readiness.
