WABI talks with Godfried about U.S.-Iran situation
Nathan Godfried told WABI (Channel 5) that the United States airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s Quds Force, could impact Mainers. “Trump has ordered more troops into the Middle East. And the way that the current military structure exists, that’s going to mean National Guard units are going to be rotated into the mix, as well as regular Army troops. It means that Mainers serving in the military, either through the National Guard or through the regular Armed Forces, are going to be in harm’s way,” said the Adelaide & Alan Bird Professor of History at the University of Maine.
