Freedom Salute Ceremony

About 45 Illinois Army National Guard soldiers are being honored Sunday, August 4, with a Freedom Salute Ceremony.

The soldiers are part of the 708th Medical Company, which just came back from Egypt earlier this year. The unit provided medical, dental, physical therapy and preventative medicine services to more than 2,500 personnel from 14 countries who are part of the MFO. The MFO is an international peacekeeping force that oversees the terms of the 1979 peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.

Captain Deandra Carbone, Commander of the 708th Medical Company, joined us from the North Riverside National Guard Armory with more.
