The men and women salute in honor of their country at the Punxsutawney Community Center Wednesday morning.  The same group will soon put their lives on the line. They’re the 665 Engineer Utilities Detachment and they will be deployed to Iraq

The army reserve soldiers will be overseas for about a year, completing construction related missions.

“It is a bittersweet moment because the soldiers are going and but yet they’re going to do something that’s worthy,” says the 665th Detachment Commander, CPT John Kennelly.
