Troop Send Off


    It’s difficult to tell a loved one that you might not be there for a birthday or other significant event. But Southern Utah’s troops pack up and are oscar mike for another deployment expected to last twelve months. Multiple members of the 222nd Bravo Battery and the 213th Forward Support Company have served across seas before, but no matter the experience, the seriousness sets in when the time comes to leave their loved ones. 474 troops across southern Utah deploy, hiking the number Utah National Guard Soldiers to nearly 1-thousand.
