KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - More than 200 members of the Army
Reserve 844th Engineer Battalion are heading for another deployment to Iraq.

Members of the Knoxville-based unit boarded buses Thursday
morning to carry them to Fort McCoy, Wis. to be trained.

The Knoxville News Sentinel quoted Chief Warrant Officer Pat
Harvel of Athens, Ga., saying members come from Tennessee,
Kentucky, Alabama, North Carolina and Georgia.

The 844th was deployed to Iraq earlier, arriving home in time
for Christmas in 2005 after more than a year overseas.

The heavy-construction unit specializes in road building and
other infrastructure work.
