Lowndes County  --  More troops from South Georgia leave for duty in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

An Air Force spokesman wouldn't tell us exactly where the troops are going, but said the destination was a desert location.

Two search and rescue squadrons from Moody Air Force Base left this afternoon. Personnel from the 38th and 41st squadrons are the first elements to leave from the base, and more members of the units are scheduled to leave Moody Thursday.

Their tour of duty is expected to last sixty to one hundred and twenty days.
