Nearly 3,500 Wisconsin National Guard soldiers are being deployed to the Middle East, and Janesville residents are coming together to show their support.

Lucy Anderson is organizing the activities Friday for the families of the the Guard soldiers. A public ceremony starting at 6:30pm at Janesville Craig High School will feature commanders, local lawmakers and a World War II veteran. Anderson recommends arriving early, since parking will be at a premium.
