The Tennessee National Guard 278th Armored Calvary Regiment received mobilization orders on Monday that will go into effect later this year.
Where they are going and when they will be leaving are still mysteries, however.
The exact date and location of deployment have not yet been announced.
This National Guard unit, the largest in Tennessee, is headquartered in Knoxville, and is composed of more than 3,000 soldiers.
The regiment’s Troop C of the 1st Squadron is based in Rockwood.
