THE LONG GOODBYE

Email

American flags lined Wright Street in front of the Brainerd National Guard Armory Friday morning as tears and goodbye hugs were shared by family members and Brainerd-based soldiers of Headquarters Company, 1st Combined Arms Battalion, 194th Armor.

The soldiers left their families and traveled to Fort McCoy, Wis., for training. They’ll eventually travel to Kuwait for a one-year deployment as part of the U.S. military’s drawdown of forces in Iraq.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
