Vermont Air National Guard officials say 300 airmen who deployed on Wednesday will fly combat missions in support of Operation Inherent Resolve, a mission to eliminate ISIS from Iraq and Syria. 

Guard officials were vague about an exact location when Local 22 & 44 brought you the story yesterday. 

According to a media release sent on Thursday, the recently deployed group will provide air to ground attacks against ISIS.  Officials say the deployment is expected to last at least three months.  

Local 22 & 44 has included new video and some of the speeches from Wednesday's deployment in this story.
