Soldier Sendoff 

(WABI) – The soldiers are part of the 169th Military Police Company, based in Brewer.

After saying good bye to their families, they bored a Cyr bus bound for Fort Dix, New Jersey. They’ll stay there for two months until heading over to Iraq to help with security details and training Iraqi soldiers.

The 169th will be deployed for one year, and are expected to return in early July of next year.
