Kentuckians at War

National Guard Unit Readies for Deployment

Although the U.S. is withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, the war is not over for more than 60 members of the Kentucky National Guard in Frankfort. They were honored in a farewell ceremony Tuesday as they prepare to go to Afghanistan in the next several weeks. The members – officially Agribusiness Development Team 4 – will focus on teaching Afghanis how to be agriculturally self-sufficient in a war-ravaged nation.
