Last updated on Tuesday, January 1, 2008

(LAFAYETTE) - More Indiana soldiers are getting ready to go to Iraq.

The 76th Infantry Brigade Combat Team leaves Indiana Wednesday for Georgia. They will train until March and then travel to Iraq to participate in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

One soldier says he's numb ahead of his deployment. Another soldier says the hardest part about the assignment is leaving his family behind.
