Albany -- You can personally thank South Georgia National Guard troops for their service in Iraq. The Albany Chamber of Commerce, the VFW, and the National Guard's family support group will sponsor a community celebration for the 48th Brigade tomorrow.

Senator Saxby Chamblis, Representative Sanford Bishop, and Mayor Willie Adams will help honor the troops at the Appreciation Day ceremony.

The troops say it's an honor when the community shows support for what they do."It's important to them for the community to show their appreciation as to the job that they did in Iraq and the sacrifice that they made in leaving their family and their job, and so forth," said 1st Sergeant Arthur Gibson of the 2nd Battalion, 121st Infantry.

The 48th Brigade appreciation day starts at 10 am at the Albany armory and is open to the public.
