On the afternoon of Friday, March 20, Tom Ganser photographed a significant number of National Guard members arriving at the Whitewater Armory. Local residents also reported observing Guard members staying at the Super 8 on Friday night. It seems clear that this activity was related to the call up of troops in preparation to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic.
