Mississippi Guardsmen Put on Alert

At least six Mississippi Army National Guard units have been told to be ready for duty in the Middle East. Major General Harold Cross says about 850 soldiers in Mississippi have been alerted for possible mobilization.  The alert doesn't mean they will be called to duty, but it is likely.  Currently 240 Mississippi guard soldiers and airmen are serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait, but that number could increase to 600 or 800 within the next six months.
