Entire 101st Airborne Division Deploying to Iraq

The 101st Airborne Division is once again answering the call to serve in Iraq.

Around 20,000 soldiers got their final briefing Friday afternoon at Ft. Campbell. It's been two years since the division was last deployed to Iraq.

Soldiers will board planes and be heading off Friday to do numerous duties, including helping train Iraqi law enforcement. Families took the afternoon to say goodbye.

This is just the 5th time in the history of the 101st that the entire division has been deployed all at once. The soldiers will be gone a year.
