Ky. military units deploy



The Associated Press

As soldiers based in Middletown, Ohio, deployed, more Kentucky-based soldiers got the word that they would be needed in the war against terrorism. Others, already notified that they are going, prepared to say their farewells to their families.

As 15,000-20,000 soldiers in the 101st Airborne prepared to leave Fort Campbell, other units in the state got the callup.

The Danville-based 217th Quartermaster Detachment, Kentucky Army National Guard was alerted Saturday for possible mobilization. The unit specializes in water purification.

Also on Saturday, Army Reserve soldiers with the 400th Quartermaster Company from Maysville and Lexington, and the 125th Transportation Company in Lexington, were notified that they would be called to active duty today.

The 45 soldiers, who provide supply services in military operations, will fill vacancies with the 658th Quartermaster Company based in Tupelo, Miss.

The 478th Combat Engineers held a family information day at Northern Kentucky University on Sunday. The unit is expected to deploy early this morning to Fort Campbell.

So far, more than 3,000 Kentucky National Guard soldiers and airmen have been mobilized by President Bush in the war on terrorism.
