Columbus-Based Soldiers Sent Off

Wednesday night was one of the largest send-off ceremonies for the members of the 1075th Medium Truck Company. The nearly 200 soldiers of the Columbus-based unit will leave to support Operation Iraqi Freedom. The will head to Fort Riley Thursday night. Organizers are planning to send the troops off in style, by lining Lincoln Avenue in York. If you're interested in showing support, you should be along the path by 8:45. The National Guard Soldiers aren't sure when they'll head to the middle east. But they have orders to be there for 18 to 24 months.
