Military police battalion heading to Iraq Sunday

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - About 80 National Guard members will leave
Athens on Father's Day, heading to Iraq where they will train Iraqi
police for the next 12 months.

A send-off for family and friends is set for 4 p.m. Sunday at
Beasley Field for the 203rd Military Police Battalion.

Originally, about 150 men and women were told they were going to
Iraq, but the unit's mission was changed, reducing the number to be
deployed to about 80.
