People in St. Martinville, La. are supporting local soldiers who will soon be heading to Iraq by putting up yellow ribbons across town.  The local chapter of Knights of Columbus says the group is challenging every town in St. Martin Parish to show support for Louisiana National Guard troops.

There will be a deployment ceremony for the 256th Infantry Brigade's 3,500 soldiers Friday at Camp Shelby near Hattiesburg, Miss.
