Hinesville, Ga. -- More Georgia troops took off for the Persian Gulf Tuesday night.
The 3rd Infantry Division here at fort Stewart includes four brigades, each with about 4,000 soldiers. Many of the troops from two of those brigades are heading to the gulf this week.
Specialist Alvin Givens is one of those soldiers. He spent six months in Kosovo, and just got home two months ago. Not long after he returned, he found out he would be deployed to the gulf.
He got his final orders Tuesday night. He left Hunter Army Airfield, about forty miles from Fort Stewart, to begin his journey to the Middle East. “It’s taking a toll on my family, because we just found out that I’ll be leaving at 9:00,” said Givens. “But other than that, I’m just taking one day at a time.”
Specialist Givens spent the day running errands and just spending time with his wife and 11-year-old son. He says this deployment is harder on his family than the last, because he hasn't been home that long, and because now there is a serious threat of war.
When the latest deployment is complete, there could be as many as 16,000 soldiers from here at fort Stewart in the gulf region.
Ben Roberts and Dawn Hobby are on special assignment at Fort Stewart this week. We’ll have a special newscast, the Road to War, live from Fort Stewart Thursday, at six o'clock.
