Long before sunrise, members of the 4th Fighter Wing's 336th Fighter Squadron -- and more than a dozen F-15E Strike Eagles -- left Seymour Johnson Air Force Base for war. Their destination, the Russian-built Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, will be their new home for the next four months.

For more on the deployment, including interviews with family members left behind, some of the airmen themselves and 4th Commander Col. Mark Kelly, see today's News-Argus or follow www.NewsArgus.com.
