Deployment Ceremony held for 539th Transportation Company

A Deployment Ceremony was held this morning for the soldiers of the 539th Transportation Company based out of Fort Wainwright.

90 soldiers with the company will deploy to Kuwait later this month to help aid the nation in its efforts to remove soldiers from the decade long wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

The soldiers' jobs will be to transport supplies out of country in aid of the draw down.

The company is slated to be deployed for 9-months while performing what their leaders called a quote, "vital and important task in our country's safety."
