FARMINGTON, Mo. -- A special weekend ceremony honors more than 100 local soldiers as they prepare to head off to Iraq. Soldiers with the 1138th Engineer Company out of Farmington, Missouri prepare to answer the call to duty again. It's the second tour of duty for almost half of the 110 soldiers, and the third tour of duty for a few others.
The true sense of community became clear when one soldier had difficulties singing the national anthem. That's when the crowd jumped in, singing the anthem along with him.
