More Maine National Guard airmen are heading overseas. Governor Paul LePage and Major General John Libby gave a send-off Wednesday at the Air National Guard station in South Portland to a group of six airmen from the 243d Engineering Installation Squadron who were heading to Qatar. Air Guard Colonel Eric Lind says seven more airmen will depart for Qatar on Tuesday. An additional 28 will leave in early November, bound for Afghanistan where they will work with the US Army. Lind says squadron members will be installing engineering equipment for communications and computer systems during their six-month deployments. (AP)
