WYOMING - The National Guard Armory in Wyoming held a deployment ceremony Thursday afternoon for sixty five soldiers who are heading to fight the war in Afghanistan.

The men and women are part of a communication network, that will help soldiers communicate on the front lines.

The soldiers are departing this week for two months of training before heading to the war torn county.

There's a wide variety of soldiers deploying from a number of different backgrounds. They include a soldier who's leaving his pregnant wife behind, a nineteen year old medic who just learned she was deploying two weeks ago, and a young woman who's heading out on her first deployment.

We'll have a live report tonight on Fox 17 News at 6 and 10.
