Support in Wisconsin was tremendous as the 2/127th was getting ready to deploy. A sendoff was held in Ripon, in Fond du Lac, at Volk Field and at Camp Shelby before the troops left for Iraq. Andrew was honored to meet Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle at one of the sendoffs. Veteran Jack Frank, shared a tender moment with Andrew at the Ripon sendoff as well. Andrew's wife Angie, along with Dan Kelm's wife Erin, savored each minute before their husbands boarded the plane. Joel and Janie and Andrew's brothers, along with lifelong friends Doug and Kathy Kelm, attended the sendoffs and wished their soldiers Godspeed.
