After many months of training, deployment to Iraq is just weeks away for members of the Pennsylvania National Guard's 56th Stryker Brigade. They'll come home for a week's leave near Christmas, and then head to Fort Dix in New Jersey, where they'll fly to Kuwait and begin their mission. Soldiers have been preparing around the clock since September, when they left for advanced training in Mississippi. As part of our ongoing Impact of War series, WITF's Scott Detrow visited the soldiers at Camp Shelby.
