Suburban Army Reserve unit heading to Iraq

August 24, 2009 Thirty-one men and women with the 318th Public Affairs Operations Center in Forest Park gathered for a roll call Monday morning.

It is the unit's second deployment to Iraq. They supported U.S. troops when the Iraq invasion began. They could be the last public affairs operation to be deployed because of the drawdown of U.S. troops in Iraq.

The Army Reserve unit is slated to be in Iraq for at least a year.
