UNDATED (WSAU)   Around 100 Wisconsin Air National Guard troops were deployed to Southwest Asia on Veterans’ Day. They belong to the 128th Air Control Squadron based at Volk Field in Juneau County – and they’ll spend six months supporting air defense efforts in the Persian Gulf. Some members left early, but most were given a send-off yesterday at their base.

Meanwhile, ceremonies were held throughout Wisconsin yesterday to honor those who served. State officials held three ceremonies at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery near Spooner, and at state Veterans’ Homes at Union Grove and King in Waupaca County.
