45th Infantry Brigade gets mobilization orders

Oklahoma City (AP) _ The Oklahoma National Guard's 45th Infantry brigade combat team now has its orders for duty in Iraq.  Brigadier General Myles Deering says more than 2,400 soldiers in the 45th will mobilize on October 19th and be sent first to Fort Bliss, Texas, for ten weeks of mission-specific training.

After training at Fort Bliss, the soldiers will be sent to Iraq early next year. The soldiers were first told they could be called to active duty last April and recently spent 28 days in training at Camp Gruber in Eastern Oklahoma and at Fort Chaffee in Western Arkansas.

The soldiers will go through another 15 days training starting September 10th.  The deployment is expected to last until October 2008.
