Soldiers from the U.S. Army Reserve's 379th Adjutant General Co. (Postal), Bothell, left Feb. 21 from Sea-Tac International Airport for Fort Benning, Georgia, where they will undergo additional processing and training before heading to Europe in support of operation Joint Guard, the peacekeeping effort in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Hungary, and Croatia. Members of the unit have been undergoing training at home station since being alerted more than two weeks ago to prepare for possible mobilization and deployment. The unit's specific duty station in Europe has not yet been determined.

- Dairy farmers in the Snoqualmie Valley either purchased or negotiated with suppliers to obtain free fill to build "critter pads." Farmers paid a $140 permit fee, as well. Disaster funds were not used to build critter pads, as stated in last week's article.
- The correct phone number for information about Troop 909 and its Racoon Patrol is 488-6769.
