UPDATE at 11:40 p.m.: Just back from walking the dog. I talked to two groups of the guardsman and the guys here in Borderstan are from Iowa.
I saw National Guard troops in Borderstan this afternoon. These guys were at the corner of 15th and R NW next to the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church; a few minutes later they joined a larger group at 14th and R NW. Anyone know their exact mission?
