149th Farewell

-A A +A

Despite ice and snow covered roads, hundreds of supporters piled into the Harrison County Middle School Gym to say farewell to the 149th Vertical Construction Company Saturday, Feb. 2. Several guest speakers, including Kentucky Congressman Any Barr, State Rep. Tom McKee, Mayor Steve Moses and Harrison County Magistrate William Fritz, brought forth words of encouragment and above all safe returns from service in Afghanistan. The 149th Vertical Construction Company will endure a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom where they will construct barracks, offices and other buildings. The unit is expected to return home sometime in late December of this year.
