Pentagon to Mobilize 2,100 to Replace Troops in Ebola Fight

The Pentagon is mobilizing 2,100 Army Reserve and Army National Guard soldiers to replace troops currently serving in West Africa to help control the Ebola outbreak there, NBC News reported. The troops will be headed to Liberia and Senegal, where there are currently 2,200 U.S. troops deployed. That number will grow to nearly 3,000 by mid-December, officials have said. More than 80 military personnel returning to the U.S. this week will be placed in a special facility and monitored for 21 days as a precaution against Ebola.
