Albany - Albany police say they won't forget fellow officers deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

APD officers are filling up "care" boxes with cards and goodies to send to five officers recently sent to Fort Stewart with the 48th brigade of the National Guard. "We want them to know that we haven't forgotten about them, and we're still thinking about them and their families," said Lt. Tracey Barnes. "The families sometime feel neglected when someone goes overseas. We want the families to know they will be taken care of."

APD is also helping the national guardsmen families by offering to mow lawns or do odd jobs around the house.

The 48th Brigade is training at Fort Stewart before being sent overseas.
