LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Members of a Nebraska Army National Guard agriculture team are preparing to leave for Afghanistan.
The soldiers are part of the guard's Afghan Agribusiness Development Team and will be in Afghanistan for a year to help the Afghan government and farmers. The soldiers will replace members of another Nebraska ag team.
Following Tuesday's sendoff, the soldiers will report to Camp Atterbury in Indiana for a month's training before leaving for Afghanistan.
