Among the newcomers is Joseph Crane Jr., of Watkins Glen. Crane was in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years and went on two combat deployments, including Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. His duties there included training Afghan troops.

Crane also was assigned to more than 100 combat patrols with the goal of winning the “hearts and minds” of the Afghan people and believes the effort was a success.

He'll be assigned to Troop C in Sidney.
