Tift County- Hundreds of Georgia National Guard troops are already training for a tour of duty in Iraq.

Hundreds more will leave in Friday morning. At the National Guard Armory in Tift County, soldier's packs are ready and waiting for them. About 27 soldiers will leave Friday morning for training at Fort Stewart. Training there and in California will prepare them for upcoming duty in Iraq.

"Active duty is getting hit pretty hard, but I don't know with National Guard coming in there. But we all get the same training, so we've got to keep our wits over there," said Staff Sergeant Mark Pack.

Soldiers will also depart from Cordele, Americus and Valdosta Friday.
