Indiana National Guardsmen Depart for Afghan Deployment

More than 150 soldiers of the 1413th Engineer Company bid farewell to family and friends Sunday in Franklin, Indiana, before a nearly yearlong deployment to Afghanistan.

The plumbers, electricians, carpenters and masons will perform base closure and retrograde operations in support of the drawdown of Operation Enduring Freedom.

The company deployed overseas in 2013 to El Salvador to aid in the construction of a school as part of a humanitarian effort.
