Reserves Deployed from Lubbock Reserve Center

The crisis with Iraq has hit the home front on Monday as more than a hundred marines are sent off from the South Plains to serve active duty. Officials at the armed forces national guard reserve center say they haven't seen such a deployment since the Gulf War.

108 marines loaded up military vehicles and then left for camp Pendleton, near San Diego, California. After reporting to base, the marines will begin their training and wait for their orders.
