MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Memorial Day is a time to honor fallen soldiers, but some Army Reserve soldiers from Wisconsin are preparing to deploy overseas. 

Over the weekend the 395th Ordnance Company said their farewells in Appleton.

"As it got closer, you know, the emotions started coming a little bit more, but you know, we've all -- we've all kind of talked about it and you know we're all in the same mind that it's gonna be a quick one," said platoon leader Brett Peters. "Before they know it, I'll be home, before I know it, I'll be home. And you know, we could go on."

Officials say these reservists will be helping with oversight on ammunition in the Middle East.
