WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)-The storm isn't stopping a group of West Michigan soldiers from returning to training.
After spending the holidays with their families, about 100 members of the 125th Infantry left for Mississippi Sunday night. Family and friends filled the Wyoming armory to say goodbye to them once again.
The group will finish up training at Camp Shelby before deploying to Afghanistan, to help train Afghan police officers.
"[I] just hope for success. That eventually let the Afghans run their own country, and we can come back home and be with our families every holiday," said Company Commander Micheal Shook.
Traditionally, soldiers must pay their own transportation costs when on leave, but Great Lakes Bussing covered the cost to bring half of the company home on December 22.
