Columbus- Bags were lined up and faces were filled with sadness and fear, as the 104th Transportation Unit prepared to head to war.
It was a bitter sweet day for Private First Class William Roberts. He's proud to serve his country, but he says it hurts leaving his wife and newborn son, Ethan. William Roberts says, "It's hard, but duty calls, and I'm coming back home."
While he's gone, his wife, Jessica, says she will tell Ethan what a brave and courageous father he has. Jessica says, "I'm very proud of him. He is an outstanding soldier."
As moving vans are loaded, Staff Sgt. Michael McCullum's mom, says her heart is weak. It's a feeling she says no mother wants to experience. Geneaver Green adds, "I am going to miss him. He is my heart."
Two soldiers already have spouses in the Middle East, and they hope their paths will cross. Sgt. First Class Lisa Clark says, " We want this to be over and me and my husband to be a couple again."
Sgt. Derrick Porcher says, "She's been deployed over there for two months and she's doing pretty good." Then, it was time for final good byes, and one by one soldiers loaded buses.
They are optimistic about their futures. CWII Brian Beltran says, "I'm excited. I just can't wait to get over there and do my part and help out the entire war effort."
The 104th Transportation unit left Fort Benning by bus headed to Robbins Air Force Base. Then, they will fly to Kuwait.
