Group of Oklahoma soldiers can't wait to serve in Iraq

A group of soldiers from Oklahoma is eagerly waiting to be deployed to Iraq. Staff Sergeant Arlie Cates and three of his men are all from Oklahoma, but actually belong to a National Guard unit in Kansas.

The men changed units twice so they could have the opportunity to go to Iraq. They'll leave within the next 60 days. Cpl Jason Christian: "There are other guys that have been there and done that and I want to go and do my part and give some of the other guys a break. That's why I do it."

The soldiers will be gone for a year to 18 months.
