Davis visits with Troops at 278th sendoff, offers service to families of deployed soldiers

On February 5, U.S. Rep. Lincoln Davis traveled down to Camp Shelby, Mississippi with other Tennesseans, including Governor Bredesen, First Lady Andrea Conte, Tennessee’s Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Max Haston, and Commissioner of Veterans Affairs John Keys for the 278th Armored Calvary Regiment deployment ceremony. The 278th is the Tennessee National Guard’s largest single unit.
This is the second time the more than 3,000 soldiers of the 278th have been deployed to Iraq. They have been stationed at Camp Shelby since December preparing for their mission.
“I am proud to be able to pay tribute to the fighting men and women of the 278th Regiment,” said Davis. “It is the least we can do to honor the continued sacrifice they and their families have chosen to make for our country.”
Congressman Davis added that the full resources of his office would be available to the family members of the 278th whose loved ones are overseas. Family members seeking information or assistance are encouraged to contact any of Congressman Davis’s four offices located throughout the 4th district.
