S. Ga. soldiers head to Mississippi

September 05, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia--  National Guard troops from Thomasville are helping in the Hurricane Katrina recovery effort.

Soldiers from the 1148th Transportation Company arrived at Camp Shelby in Mississippi on Sunday. They'll be hauling supplies, including water and food. Commanders say they don't know if New Orleans will be one of their stops.

The troops will be used in a variety of ways, including security if needed. About 85 of the company's soldiers will be deployed for at least two weeks. But, it's possible they will be gone longer.
