BLOOMER, Wis. — Maj. Jared Siverling, currently an operations officer with the Wisconsin Army National Guard’s 64th Troop Command, was enjoying a small gathering at a local restaurant four months ago to celebrate returning from a deployment to the Middle East as part of the 26-member 157th Military Engagement Team, building partner capacity with ally nations in the Middle East. He was surprised when his friend Justin Clark, who lives an hour away, showed up.
