1-126th Aviation Regiment to Iraq 

Charlie Company, 1-126th Aviation Regiment, is about to deploy again.

Tuesday they’ll gather at the Alfond arena in Orono for a sendoff ceremony.

First they’ll head to Texas for training, then on to Iraq.

About 70% of the personnel who are heading over this year are veterans of the first deployment.

The unit should be home two months earlier this time around. The troops are scheduled to return in January of 2009.

Tuesday’s sendoff ceremony will begin at 3:00 p.m. at Alfond arena in Orono.
