MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A group of soldiers will get a chance to say goodbye to family and friends Wednesday before they ship off to help fight the war in Iraq.

A farewell ceremony for the soldiers will take place at 1:30 p.m. at the Army Reserve training center at Fort Snelling.

The 847th has deployed multiple elements to Iraq and Kosovo within the last three years.
