ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Two civilian Marines and four contractors assigned to the Maintenance Center on the base were sent off with tearful goodbyes by family and friends Tuesday.

The mechanics and welders are going to Iraq in support of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles. This is Steven Ray's third deployment-- he volunteered to go.

"I know what's going on," said Welder Steven Ray. "I ain't going in blindfolded and I was on the first deployment over there so I know exactly where to go, what to do. It should be a good trip, should be a good trip."

"We're excited to go over there and do a job for them. Fix up whatever they tear up so I look forward to going," said Civilian Marine Mechanic Bryan Finley.

The group of six will be deployed six to 12 months. They are flying out of Atlanta Tuesday and should be in Iraq by the end of the week.
