Local troops prepare for upcoming deployment.

The local National Guard Unit, Battery A of the 1-194 Field Artillery Unit, recently completed its final two weeks of training at Camp Ripley, Minn., in preparation for its deployment to Afghanistan. The soldiers, who have undergone several training sessions over the past few months, saw their hard work pay off as they earned several of the top medals during this training session. These two stories and photos were provided by Second Lieutenant Kyle Brewer.
