A North Dakota-based National Guard unit on Saturday officially took over responsibility of a multinational task force working to maintain a safe and secure environment in Kosovo.

During an event at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, Brig. Gen. Alan S. Dohrmann of Bismarck, of the North Dakota Guard's 141st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, accepted responsibility for the Multi-National Task Force-East, which consists of nearly 2,200 soldiers from several NATO countries.

The task force's U.S. contingent has more than 1,300 soldiers from 37 states, including 600 from the North Dakota National Guard, according to a news release from the Guard.

Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk, adjutant general of the North Dakota National Guard, attended the event, as did Kosovo's president, Fatmir Seidiu.

The MNTF-E stretches along Kosovo's eastern administrative boundary line and is one of five sectors where NATO peacekeeping forces conduct patrols and engage with people and institutions, the news release said.
