National Guard Unit Mobilized

More than a hundred soldiers from the La Crosse area will eventually be sent overseas to take part in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The 32nd Engineer Company out of Onalaska was ordered to active duty on Friday.

A Wisconsin National Guard spokesman says the soldiers are expected to go after training at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, and that their total active duty will be more than a year, but probably less than two.
