JOINT BASE LEWIS- MCCHORD — Another batch of local troops deployed to Afghanistan Sunday.

“It’s kind of like being on a varsity sports team in high school,” said Maj. Chris Panush, who was deploying with troops Sunday. “You’ve been suiting up and practicing. You know the plays. It’s time to go to work. We’re ready for our turn and we’re proud to serve.”
