PLYMOUTH, Wis. (AP) -- Eighty Wisconsin National Guard soldiers are ready to ship out for a nine-month mission in Afghanistan.
Dozens of well-wishers gathered in Sheboygan County on Saturday to give the soldiers a rousing send-off.
The soldiers are with the Bravo Battery, 1st Battalion, 121st Field Artillery based in Plymouth. They leave Monday for about six weeks of training at Fort Bliss, Texas, before heading overseas.
