Unit Information

The 347th Regional Support Group (RSG) is an Army National Guard brigade headquartered in Roseville that is capable of providing trained and ready combat forces. Additionally, the 347th RSG is prepared to support the State of Minnesota with troops capable of assisting in a disaster.

The mission of the 347th Regional Support Group is to deploy and provide contingency and expeditionary base operations, with responsibilities for managing facilities, providing administrative and logistical support for troop services and ensuring the security of personnel and facilities on a base camp. The unit provides command and control of assigned units during homeland security, homeland defense and other civil support missions within the U.S. including managing the reception, staging, onward movement and integration of supporting forces.

2013 Accomplishments

The Roseville-based 147th Financial Management Detachment returned in July from a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan. The unit executed 170 Financial Management Support Team missions to 26 austere locations in Regional Command East. The 147th Human Resources Company, also based in Roseville, continued to reset from its deployment to Afghanistan in 2012 where they managed personnel accountability operations throughout Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan while conducting postal operations at 19 locations throughout Afghanistan. In October, the Chisholm-based 114th Transportation Company departed for a deployment to Afghanistan to assist in the drawdown of forces.

The Regional Support Group continued to train and demonstrate its capacity as the logistical support leader in the Minnesota National Guard in 2013. The unit achieved a milestone in the history of the Minnesota National Guard as Col. Johanna Clyborne became the first female commander of a Minnesota Army National Guard major subordinate command.

2014 Objectives

The 347th Regional Support Group will continue to support global operations through unit deployments and stateside readiness activities. The 114th Transportation Company will carry out critical mission operations in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In order to ensure the brigade and subordinate companies are prepared to respond to the needs of the nation and the state, the entire brigade will participate in externally validated exercises. The strengthening and focus on family readiness group efforts and Beyond the Yellow Ribbon continues to be a priority for the Regional Support Group in the upcoming year. The 347th will host the Minnesota National Guard's 2014 observance of Women's Equality Day.
