Ft. Benning - Those who are being called to active military duty have to stop their routine lives and that sometimes means putting down the school books.
Private First Class Monica Lashley of Albany is at Fort Benning with the 1148th Transportation Group. Her group left Thomasville a week ago. Lashley, a full time student at Darton College, had to withdraw from school. She says, "Kind of nervous and don't know what to expect. My mind is going in a bunch of different directions, but I've been praying a lot."
Lashley was also supposed to start a new job at Pelham Parkway Nursing Home as a certified Nursing Assistant.
The 1148th Transportation Group is expected to leave Fort Benning between now and March second.
