Ceremony for National Guards being deployed

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds gathered Saturday to say goodbye to a National Guard unit out in Lenoir.

50 soldiers from the 630th combat sustainment support battalion are heading to the Middle East.

Not to wage war but to keep the peace between Egypt and Israel.

The soldiers are heading to the Sinai Desert as part of a multinational effort to enforce the Camp David peace accords.

In the next week they will head to Indiana for training and by this time next month they will be in the Sinai Desert.
