An Army National Guard battalion in Lawton has its own band of brothers. Four brothers are all stationed in the same unit.

They were deployed to Fort Sill for training and to protect the post during the war. One by one all four of them joined the military several years ago. And, even during these tough times, they still manage to find the brighter side.

Jason Blount, Army National Guard, "now that we've come down here, we got to know each other a little better, spend more time with each other and that's pretty cool."

Justin Blount, Army National Guard, “it's kinda funny, just like here they said, there's too many Blounts in one room, it's like, hey, that's what you get."

There is always a chance the brothers could be deployed to Iraq. They say if that happens, they hope the army lets them stay together.
