Security Squadron Deployed From Fort Smith

Members of the 188th Security Forces Squadron have left Fort Smith for deployment to an undisclosed airbase in the Middle East.

The last of about 15 airmen left Monday and will be attached to the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing where they will help install security and aircraft protection at the base. About half of the group left Fort Smith for the base on Sunday.

Tech. Sgt. Josh Lewis told the Times Record that the airmen will spend about six months deployed.
