Troops to war

    Today, many members of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard leave for training in Fort Dix before deployment to Afghanistan:

    One hundred soldiers from the Williamstown Armory, 9207 U.S. Route 209, Williamstown, and 75 from Biddle Armory, 2700 Southampton Road, Philadelphia.

    Today on Morning Edition, hear a story from our ongoing Impact of War series about a soldier who fought in Afghanistan, and now lives in South Philadelphia.
