Approximately 65 Soldiers of the Colorado Army National Guard’s Company B, 5th Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group (Airborne) will bid farewell to family and friends March 5 at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver at 3:30 p.m.

During their six-month deployment, the Soldiers will operate under U.S. Central Command and support a NATO-led mission which provides training, advice, and assistance for host-nation security forces and institutions.

The Soldiers are based in Watkins, Colo., but they live in communities across the state. Some travel from states as far away as California to be a part of the 5-19th Special Forces Group.
