Members of the 429th Forward Support Battalion have been called to active service by Uncle Sam.

But questions to where the Staunton troops would be going and when how many would go, have been left unanswered.

"As of right now, we are processing our men,” commented major Jimmy Kilbourne. " All we know is that the men and women called up will go to Ft.Pickett Virginia.”

Kilbourne says after the time at Ft.Pickett, the troops will have been assigned to "Protection Assignments" in the Washington D.C. Metro area.

"They will be guarding a number of military bases throughout the DC metro area,” commented Kilbourne.

The troops will leave for Ft. Pickett in two weeks.
