The Texas Roadrunners assembled at staging area, ready for deployment. Kommandos volunteering for duty in the hinterlands (small towns outside Houston) are wearing desert camos. The troops will be deployed in stages: Saturday, May 27 to small towns in rural areas; Sunday, May 28 to Houston areas. To honor a unit in the 101st Airborne, these Kommandos adopted their name, The Roadrunners, so they are called the Texas Roadrunners.
As families gathered to say goodbye at the departure area, small children requested that they be allowed to ask that their mommies and daddies be brought home.
