A lot of tears were shed this morning at Fort Bliss as hundreds of soldiers began their journey overseas. Before the soldiers took off, their families had a chance to see them off, during a heart-touching ceremony. The 300 soldiers, from the 591st Military Police Company, are being deployed to a one year tour of duty in Iraq. While these families know things will not be the same with their loves ones far away, they also say they try to stay positive.
