ATLANTA -

A group of metro Atlanta soldiers said goodbye to their families early Sunday morning as they prepare to head to the Middle East.

The group from the 335th Signal Command is preparing for a crucial support role in Afghanistan.

The men and women ensure the right communications equipment is delivered to soldiers.

The soldiers say that while it is hard to leave their families, they understand their sacrifice is important.

They will not get to see their home or their loved ones for another nine months to a year.
