CAMP BUEHRING, Kuwait- New York Army National Guard soldiers assigned to the 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade, the 642nd Aviation Support Battalion, and Company A 3rd Battalion 142nd Aviation Battalion and serving in Kuwait are sending New Year's wishes home to their families via video.

A New Year's "shout out" video produced by the 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade's Public Affairs section is posted on the military's Defense Visual Information Distribution website, and can be viewed online.

The video features soldiers from the Albany area, Buffalo, Long Island, Western New York, and the New York City suburbs.

Soldiers from other states, assigned to other National Guard units serving as part of the 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade's task force in Kuwait, are also included in the video. These soldiers come from Indianapolis, Ind., and Leonardtown, Md.

Television stations with accounts on the DVIDS system can download the video segments for us on their programming. The video can be found here:

Last week the brigade produced a video of brigade soldiers extending Christmas wishes to their families at home as well.
