Tate County MS Turns Out For Troop Send-Off

Banner Sign for troops






The overcast skys couldn't keep the citizens of Tate County MS from turning out to support local troops on their way to redeployment in Iraq.  It was with a sense of pride and a few tears that Tate Countians bid 'God Speed' on Friday, May 1 to the National Guard 2-198th Combined Battalion.  

Citizens of Tate County for Troops

The Senatobia Fire Dept. brought their ladder truck complete with an American flag on the extended ladder.      Firetruck with flag








The parking lot of Wendy's at the corner of Main St. and the I-55 expressway exit was reserved for family members of the departing troops.  This was done so that they would be the last faces the soliders would see before getting on the interstate.

Hats off to the Tate County Economic Development Foundation for organizing this send-off and to the Senatobia Civitan Club for providing flags.  Also to the Senatobia High School students for all of their hard work on the signs.  Kevin Pitts donated his design services for the banner (first picture above) and many local churches pitched in to cover the cost of the banner production.

We wanted to honor the local troops and their families and thank them for the sacrifices they have made and are continuing to make.  God bless them and may they return safely to a grateful country.
