Captain Alan Bennett of Bolckow is one of 64 Missouri National Guard soldiers and airmen on their way to afghanistan in the "Agribusiness Development Team".
The team includes ag experts with civilian and military experience who will tackle projects like water management, soil enhancement, crop cultivation, and other issues in afghanistan.
This also marks the first time the Missouri Army and Air National Guard members have been deployed together.
