2 Guard units to be honored for Iraq service

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Members of the Alabama Army National Guard's 621st Troop Support Command will be honored Saturday for
their service in Iraq.

A "Freedom Salute" ceremony (10 a.m.) will recognize 30 members of the 621st, their families and community supporters. The unit, based at Fort McClellan, deployed to Iraq in July 2007.

The ceremony will be conducted in the former WAC Chapel at Fort McClellan.

A similar event will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. in Eufaula for members of the 1103rd Combat Sustainment Battalion. The unit's 75 soldiers returned from Iraq in May.

The ceremony for the 1103rd will be held at the Eufaula Community Center.
