Soldiers Prepare for Deployment

By Tamara Evans | 

Friends and family were on hand to honor their soldiers who will be deploying this month to head to Iraq.

Around 70 soldiers will deploy from our area and are teaming up with a group from Barbourville.

The ceremony held today was to show support for all these soldiers.

"I am so thankful for the support that Bowling Green has offered these soldiers and their family members. It's wonderful to know with support systems in place already the family members can be well taken care of when they need help", says one soldier's wife, Kim Farley.

If you would like to show your support for these soldiers, the Family Support Group is suggesting that you display a flag to show that Bowling Green and the surrounding communities support our troops.

On Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. at Warren Central High School the Kentucky Army National Guard will honor the 617th Military Police Company.

We'll have much more on this coming up Sunday night at 10:00 p.m.
