Washington National Guard Troops Deployed

GRANDVIEW, Wash. -      The Washington Army National Guard's 790th Chemical company marched into their going-away ceremony at Country park in Grandview, Washington.  Friends, family members and members of the community came to show their respects and say their goodbyes.

Sergeant Jim Jack says that some of the unit's members have been through this ceremony before, but for the first timers, it can be something quite emotional for both themselves and their families.  Jack says the ceremony is more than just a goodbye to their loved-ones; it is another way to show support to the troops.
