Tennessee Troops Deployed to the Border

Four Tennessee Army National Guardsmen left Saturday for border patrol.

This comes two days after Governor Bredesen announced that 27 Tennessee soldiers from the 1/230th in Lousiville would be on border patrol for thirty days.

Two soldiers left yesterday and the rest are expected to leave Wednesday morning.

Tennessee has already sent 550 soldiers and airmen to help with border patrol since August.
