Duarte, CA, October 14, 2014 – In the spirit of showing appreciation for the unwavering service provided by our local National Guard, the Duarte City Council has entered into a community partnership entitled the "Adopt-a-Unit program" with the California Army National Guard's Headquarters and Headquarters Troop (HHT), First Squadron, 18th Cavalry, (1-18) located in Azusa.

The City and HHT are looking forward to a long-lasting and positive relationship.
