Valdosta - More South Georgia soldiers are getting ready to go to battle in Iraq.

About 100 soldiers from the Army National Guard Unit in Valdosta will leave for Ft. Stewart Friday. They'll spend a few months training there and in California before going to Iraq in the spring.

There will be a send-off at the Armory on Cypress Street starting at 9:00 Friday morning. The soldiers will leave around 10:30. They'll be led by a police escort down Highway 84 West, turning on Oak Street, then heading back on Highway 84 East.

People who want to show their support for the soldiers are asked to wear red, white, and blue and come out to Highway 84 and Oak Street.
