Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) Sixty reservists out of Peterson Air Force Base are heading to Iraq.

The 302nd Airlift wing members boarded a plane this morning for what will be the third deployment for many of them. Many also volunteered to go.

They will use C-130 planes to transport soldiers and supplies.

The reservists are expected to return by mid-July
