Valley air reservists deploy for Middle East
VIENNA -- About two dozen members of the 910th Airlift Wing at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station were to leave today for the Middle East as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
This is the final scheduled Middle East deployment of the 910th's obligation in connection with the two missions.
The reservists will spend just over 30 days overseas, based at the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, a country on a peninsula bordering the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia.
The primary mission of the wing is to deliver personnel and cargo by airdrop and air-land techniques.
