14th Combat Support Hospital Deploys to Iraq

FORT BENNING, GA. (WXTX) -- Fort Benning's 14th Combat Support Hospital is heading back overseas.   87 soldiers left this morning for a 12 month deployment.  They will spend the next year providing medical care in Iraq.  It's a mission that will go beyond helping American soldiers.

"We have the detainee mission, which includes people that are detained.  We also will provide care to American soldiers," said Fort Benning Soldier Judith Lee. 

Lee along with her fellow soldiers have spent the past few months training and preparing for every situation possible that can see in Iraq.  Another 200 plus soldiers from their unit are set to deploy in a few days.
