(Undated-AP) -- The number of Georgia guard members and Marine reservists called to active duty is growing as the nation continues its massive call-up for the war on terrorism and a possible war with Iraq.
More than 340 guard members and reservists prepared for active-duty Sunday and Monday. As of last Wednesday, a total of 78,906 Guard members and reservists nationwide had been called to active duty.
Marines from the Second Beach and Terminal Operations Company, Fourth Landing Support Battalion, at Hunter Army Field near Savannah have been ordered to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. A spokesman says the unit of 120 will board buses today to Camp Lejeune, where they will receive further orders in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, the nation's war on terrorism in Afghanistan.
The Savannah unit will ship and operate heavy equipment. They could be gone for up to a year.
In Albany, 120 Marine reservists from Detachment B, Supply Company, Fourth Supply Battalion, Fourth Force Service Support Group, will depart for Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, by midweek. The detachment, which specializes in evaluating and salvaging military equipment on and off the battlefield, also will support Operation Enduring Freedom.
Members of the Georgia Army National Guard's 148th Medical Evacuation Company of Winder said their goodbyes to family and friends early Sunday as they headed to Fort Hood, Texas. Last week, most of the 100-plus member company were ordered to Fort Hood to assume duties of U.S. Army troops who had been deployed overseas.
