The brigade headquarters held its deployment ceremony for more than 150 Soldiers and their families at the Shaker HIgh School here September 7. "We are trained and ready to go to Kuwait," Martin said. "About 70% of the Soldiers have not deployed, so any lessons I have learned I'll have to impart on my soldiers."
