167th Infantry, 1st Battallion Moves Out

More Alabama troops are on the move to aid in the United States' war on terrorism.

About 130 members of the 1st battalion, 167th Infantry left an armory in Pelham Tuesday morning. Members couldn't say where they were going, but officers say the group will be performing homeland defense protection inside the United States.

This is the first Alabama Army National Guard unit which has actually left on deployment since the terrorist attacks.
