The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic prompted officials to scrub a public ceremony for the Kansas Army National Guard’s 891st Engineer Battalion, which is leaving Sunday for a yearlong deployment to Kuwait, 

Still, local residents will be able to show their support with a different kind of sendoff.

Residents are invited to gather around the courthouse square at 7 a.m. Sunday to salute the Guardsmen as they depart for Forbes Field in Topeka, and their eventual trip overseas.
