The Alabama National Guard has launched an investigation into a recent deployment from Birmingham to England to determine whether guard personnel improperly took relatives along on military aircraft.

The Birmingham News reports Berryhill has confirmed the investigation. The guard declined to elaborate on the nature of the allegations.

At issue are members of the 117th Air Refueling Wing based at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.
