National Guard To Deploy
A Haywood County based National Guard unit is getting ready to head to Afghanistan.
The 211th Military Police Company headquartered in Clyde is holding a mobilization ceremony Sunday. Deborah Reed is organizing support for the unit. She is encouraging people here to send care packages to the troops overseas.
"My husband is a former member of the National Guard Unit and we have some other family members that have been deployed. So we understand firsthand how important this is to have the support of the families as well as the community," said Reed.
She says care packages can include books and magazines, canned foods, cookies and candies. The mobilization ceremony is scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. at Haywood Community College.
