Hundreds gathered Sunday morning as 34 national guardsmen left Fort Indiantown Gap for an eight month mission in Southwest Asian and Afghanistan.

This group of 34 is the second group leaving Pennsylvania from 201st Red Horse Airmen division. Tech Sergeant Jed Riley says, “We’re over there to do a job, get it done, and come back.”
Reilly is one of the airmen in the 201st Red Horse Squadron, a specialized engineering group that does work all over the world, and this is his second deployment.
During the deployment members of the Red Horse Squadron will build roads and help improve the infrastructure abroad.

As part of tradition, the airmen’s families gathered at the Red Horse to take pictures and to put up yellow ribbons with well wishes on them before saying goodbye.
7-year-old Mason Fisher’s father is one of the airmen who departed today, and he says saying goodbye went, “Not very well.” While Mason will miss his dad for the next 8 months, he says he’s, "happy, scared” and proud of his dad for serving his country.National Guardsmen deployed from Ft.
