(KSL News) Another group from Utah is heading to Iraq.
More than 100 members of the 729th Air Control Squadron, a division of the 388th fighter wing from Hill, left as part of a standard deployment Sunday evening. They are part of a larger Air Force rotation in the war against terror.
The airmen will support other soldiers and Marines on convoys as combat air power.
And when they get to Iraq, they'll replace some other Utahns.
Lt. Col. Steve Robinson/ Commander, 729th Air Control Squadron: "As a matter of fact, some of the Utah Air National Guard 109th Air Control Squadron folks are anxiously awaiting us because when we arrive they get to come home after a much longer deployment than we'll have to endure."
The squadron will spend the next four months in Iraq.
