11-21-04- A 72 year old great-grandmother from Lawton is preparing for deployment to the war zone in Iraq. Lena Haddix will be a civilian employee of the Department of Defense and is volunteering for the duty. She says she wanted to do something for her country.
Haddix was a military wife and has worked at the Fort Sill PX since 1977. She's expected to have a similar job in Iraq, working ten hours a day.
Her preparation for deployment is similar to a soldier's, including shots and a medical checkup to make sure she's physically able to do a tour of at least six months.
