Broken Arrow Marines prepare to leave

Updated:
Some Broken Arrow US Marines are reporting for duty. They'll spend up to a year away from the home front.

26 members of the Anti Tank Training Company reserve unit will head to Iraq. The Marines reported Thursday to take care of last minute details before they leave.

They're checking out gear and updating paperwork. US Marine Sgt Matt Wilson: “you're doing a job that is needed by your country for the defense of our nation and I'm very excited to play a part in that.”

The Marines leave next week. They'll go to Boston and California for training. Then they'll head to Iraq early next year, but they will get to be home this Christmas.
