Family and local citizens gathered at the National Guard Armory in Ontario on Monday, Aug. 8, to send off 16 guardsmen for their year-long deployment to Kuwait.
A motorcycle escort, plus vehicles from local fire and ambulance departments, led the way out of the armory grounds as soldiers waved from the windows of their bus. Relatives held handmade signs while others said their goodbyes earlier at a mobilization ceremony held on . . .
