Local members of the National Guard, currently serving in Iraq, are said to be hitting their stride after three months on the ground.


The commander of the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team spoke to Wisconsin media Wednesday, live from Iraq. Colonel Steve Bensend says the mission is going well. Bensend says members of Alpha Company of the 132nd Support Battalion, based in Janesville and Elkhorn, have been supporting prison camp operations.


He says morale is good, in part because of the constant e-mails, phone calls, and packages from home.
