The guard held a special departure ceremony at Fort Indiantown Gap Thursday before training in Texas for an overseas deployment.

Governor Wolf says we owe a lot of gratitude to those close to these troops.

The soldiers are assisting with Operation Freedom’s Sentinel in the Middle East which is part of the global war on terrorism.

They'll be away from their families for about a year.
