National Guard Soldiers to Be Activated for Trump Rally

Up to 250 Oklahoma Army National Guard soldiers will be activated to assist in providing security for President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa on Saturday.

Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin stated that the troops will be used as a “force multiplier” to secure safety zones near the BOK Center, where the rally is scheduled to be held. Local and federal law enforcement agencies also will help provide security for the event.

Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Geoff Legler said the troops will be unarmed and carry shields and batons as well as pepper spray.
