The 146th Expeditionary Signal Battalion (Jacksonville, FL) deployed yesterday to go to Iraq. They left without our #2 son. He was scheduled to go with them right up to a few days before the Deployment Ceremony - instead he helped set up chairs and park cars for the other families sending off their loved ones. We aren't exactly sure why #2 was left on homefront detail, but we are happy he can stay here for now.
Every bus carrying our soldiers was escorted by members of this group - they were great.
