On June 27, Dr. Stacey Smith will report for duty, with deployment to Iraq.

Although he is a part of the North Dakota Army National Guard, as a physician, he is deployed as an individual, not with his company. Once in Iraq, Smith will get his orders, and will be attached to a group out of Cottage Grove this time around.


Smith was also deployed in the summer of 2006.
