67th Signal Battalion deploys to Iraq

October 17, 2006

Another group of Fort Gordon soldiers is headed to Iraq--some of them for a second time.

The 67th Signal Battalion had a departure ceremony this morning.

The 67th was previously in Iraq for over a year before returning in February 2005.

Soldiers and family members know this is their job.

"We have been preparing for a long time," said PFC Charles Barringer. "Ready to go over there, get my mission done and come back to my wife and sons."

"I think he's going to do a good job," said his wife Maria. "I am really proud of him."

The 67th also helped people in Mississippi and the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina came through there over a year ago.
