Virginia National Guard soldiers headed to Kuwait

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Dozens of Virginia National Guard soldiers are on their way to Kuwait.

Friends and family joined governor Terry McAuliffe and other state and military leaders in Virginia Beach Sunday to send off about 70 soldiers. Those children are going to miss their daddies.

The soldiers are based at Camp Pendleton and will be in Kuwait for a 12-month deployment as part of operation Enduring Freedom.

They will stop at Fort Hood in Texas for training before heading to the Middle East.
