Send-off ceremony planned for Iowa soldiers

Posted:

ANKENY (KWWL) -- About ten soldiers from the Iowa Army National Guard are deploying to Iraq.

The Iowa National Guard says the soldiers are part of a detachment that specializes in moving personnel around by air.

The same unit was in Iraq from November 2002 through April 2003.

A send-off ceremony is set for Friday at the Ankeny Airport.

Both local and National Guard officials are expected to attend the ceremony.

After the ceremony, the soldiers will travel to Fort Benning, Georgia, for more training.
