    It was a tough day for friends and family of Westover Reservists as they set out to leave for the Middle East Wednesday morning. But their loved ones say, they are proud of what they're about to do.

    Staff Sergeant Angel Romero said goodbye to his daughter, Dagenais and his wife Tayna, as he mentally and emotionally prepared for his six month deployment to Iraq. "
    Even though you have the sense that you are coming back and everything is going to be okay, you are going to miss your daughter and your family. But to step away for a while and then come back makes you miss them that much more," said Romero.
    Romero is part of the 439th Security Force Squadron at Westover Air Reserve Base. About a dozen of the reservists are being deployed Wednesday. They are part of more than 120 reservists from the Airlift Wing who are providing air base defense in Iraq.
