Omaha soldiers headed for Afghanistan

Gov. Dave Heineman was on hand at Omaha Northwest High School on Nov. 28 to support hundreds of local soldiers as they said their farewells before deploying to Afghanistan. The 402nd Military Police Battalion is sending 147 men and women to Fort Bliss, Texas, for a week of training before the group ships overseas to operate a detention facility near Kabul. The Nebraska National Guard is also sending 90 soldiers from the Lincoln-based Second 135th General Air Support Battalion to Iraq to aid in helicopter evacuation for sick and wounded personnel. Both groups departed Nov. 29.
