Wood Dale police officer Thomas Nickelson is getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan with the Illinois Army National Guard. He will be part of the largest mobilization of Illinois Army National Guardsmen in nearly a decade in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel, which was designed to focus on training and counterterrorism efforts. They will train at Fort Bliss in Texas before being deployed.
Please join us in thanking Officer Nickelson for his service to our country and wishing him well on this journey. We look forward to welcoming him home!
