Hoosier Troops Say Goodbye

Last updated on Wednesday, January 2, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The 76th Infantry Brigade Combat Team says good-bye today.

Another 3400 Hoosiers have been training to join the war on terror--a part of the Indiana National Guard's biggest deployment since World War II.

They're getting a sendoff this afternoon at the RCA Dome from friends, family, politicians and guard commanders. Governor Daniels will be there, along with Senator Lugar and others.

The ceremony is not open to the public--the guard wants to be sure there's room for all the friends and relatives of the deploying troops.
