FORT SILL, Okla. (AP) – Seventy-five soldiers with the 75th Fires Brigade at Fort Sill have deployed for duty in Kuwait.

The soldiers assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Battery left southwest Oklahoma on Saturday for a nine month deployment.

The combat capable unit will serve as the Army Forces Central Command-Kuwait Force Field Artillery headquarters and provide training oversight for U.S. fires units.

The ceremony included family and friends and ended with the soldiers filing out of Rinehart Fitness Center to board buses that would take them to a plane for their deployment.
