In the Service: Daniel Williams deployed to Iraq

OCEAN PARK - Air National Guard Master Sgt. Daniel A. Williams has deployed to Iraq to serve in support of Operation New Dawn, the formerly named Operation Iraqi Freedom. This transition signifies a formal end to U.S. military combat operations in Iraq.

Operation New Dawn shifts the U.S. emphasis from predominantly military to predominately civilian as the U.S. officials assist Iraqis in accordance with the Strategic Framework Agreement.

Williams, a fire protection supervisor with 19 years of military service, is regularly assigned to the 185th Air Refueling Wing, Sioux City Air National Guard Base, Iowa.

He is the son of R.D. Williams of Ocean Park and Linda Mead of Beresford, S.D.

His wife, Kimberly, is the daughter of Clinton and Beverly Wetrosky of Beresford.

The master sergeant received a bachelor's degree in 1995 from Iowa State University, Ames.
