North Carolina Families Prepare For More Overseas Deployments

The families of soldiers at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, are preparing for thousands of overseas deployments in the year ahead.

Fort Bragg is home of the Army's 82nd Airborne Division.

Major Larry Bauguess has a world map for his young daughters so they understand where he's headed.

It's harder for them to understand how long he'll be gone at least a year.

All four of the division's brigade combat teams are scheduled to serve in the Middle East and Afghanistan at some point in 2007.

Some had just gotten home from Iraq when word came they'll be shipping out again.
T
he commander of the 82nd Airborne says the unpredictability is "most frustrating."

A similar scenario is playing out a few hours east at Camp Lejeune, where two Marine regiments will be shipping out for western Iraq.
