(2) Operation Northern Watch, wherein the South Carolina Air National Guard's 169th Fighter Wing deployed to Turkey as part of an Air Expeditionary Force flying combat missions over northern Iraq;
(3) Operation Horizontes Nuevos wherein South Carolina Army National Guard engineers built schools and clinics to restore hope in the nation of Honduras ravaged by Hurricane Mitch; and
(4) Operation Joint Guardian, wherein the South Carolina Army National Guard's 792nd Army Oil Analysis Program Laboratory deployed to Macedonia in support of NATO operations in Kosovo; and
Whereas, during the past year several thousand South Carolina Army and Air National Guardsmen were called to active duty in support of civil authorities during the approaches of hurricanes Dennis and Floyd and in the wake of extensive flooding in Horry County; and
Whereas, the South Carolina National Guard is involved in numerous community support programs including:
(1) the Youth Challenge Academy, a program for at risk youth in partnership with the Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School;
