TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) -- More Tennessee National Guard members are heading to Bahrain.
State military officials in Nashville said 39 soldiers of the guard's 1175th Transportation Company, based in Tullahoma, will depart the armory there Saturday morning for training at Camp Shelby in Mississippi.
After a short specialized training period there, the members will be deployed overseas for nine months in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
The soldiers are scheduled to leave the new armory in Tullahoma at 9 a.m.
