Soldiers from the 133rd Engineering Battalion and 1035th Survey and Design Team joined family and friends at the Portland Exposition Building Saturday, August 10 during a hero's send off for the troops. The soldiers leave soon for training in Mississippi before heading to Afghanistan where they will aid in the downsizing of bases there. Chief Warrant Officer 3 Kartika Wright is part of the team that helps prepare the soldiers for mobilization. "We work hard to make sure that the unit is the best trained and the best equipped they can possibly be before they leave for deployment," said the Readfield resident.
