PLYMOUTH â€” It was difficult to find a dry eye in the packed gymnasium of the Plymouth National Guard Armory Wednesday afternoon, as local soldiers from Plymouth and New Albany prepared for their departure to Afghanistan.
The men and women stood with their loved ones, unified by a common goal but not quite willing to leave their familiesâ€™ sides just yet.
