Arkansas Pfc. Joshua Jackson (front) and Sgt. Scott Willette, both of Company D, 1st Battalion, 153 Infantry Regiment of the 39th BCT, add their bags to the stack in March 2008 as segments of the brigade begin preparing to move forward from Camp Shelby, Miss., to a base of operations in Kuwait. Groups of Arkansas' Soldiers are expected to begin leaving for Kuwait in the coming days. The Soldiers will spend a couple of weeks there training and getting acclimated to dessert conditions before moving on to their deployment stations in Iraq. (Photo by: Maj.
