30 Wis. Army reservists heading to Afghanistan

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Thirty Wisconsin Army reservists are heading to Afghanistan for a year to help train the Afghan National Army.

The reservists said goodbye to their families Sunday in Milwaukee. They'll spend the next two months training at Fort Polk in Louisiana before heading overseas.

A WITI-TV report (http://bit.ly/vKtbP5 ) says the reservists will help teach Afghans how to be military instructors, and help strengthen the military in the country.
