LAWTON, Oklahoma -- More of Oklahoma's Finest are preparing to ship out for duty.

The first of four groups of soldiers stationed at Fort Sill are being honored in a deployment ceremony. Over the next few weeks the soldiers will leave for Iraq.

They are with the post's Radar Section and have been training for the last year.

The soldiers said they'll be gone for at least 12 months, as part of "Operation New Dawn".
