Fundraiser for Send-Off Party, 216th Attached to the 39th

WEST MEMPHIS, AR (KAIT) - Military families are raising money for a send-off party before their unit is deployed to Iraq.

The 216th Military Police Company attached to the 39th Infantry Brigade will deploy to Iraq soon, but not before families of soldiers can do all they can for them to say goodbye.  The Family Readiness Group is hosting a rummage sale this Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the National Guard Armory in West Memphis.

The group plans to host a BBQ luncheon for the unit before buses take the men and women back to Camp Shelby, where they will make their final preparations for deployment to Iraq.
