The Army combat brigade stationed at Fort Polk will leave for Afghanistan in October.

A deployment ceremony for the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, is scheduled Sept. 30 at Fort Polk's Honor Field.

It will take about a month for all 3,600 soldiers to leave.

The brigade was created at the end of 2004.

While it prepared for its first deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan, several hundred of its soldiers were sent across Louisiana to help with disaster relief after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
