Soldiers Given Farewell Ahead of Independence Day Deployment

For a group of military families across Iowa, this year’s Independence Day will be a reminder of something more.

The Ankeny community said farewell to a group of National Guard soldiers Thursday in a send-off ceremony.

Ten soldiers with Detachment 34, Operational Support Airlift Command will deploy Friday for Fort Bliss, Texas.

They will train there before heading to Afghanistan for a year of service flying C-12 aircraft.

This is the fourth deployment for the unit in twelve years.
