"This is my 5th deployment, it's his first, we're fortunate to be in the same unit now, so I know mom's pretty excited about that," Michael Kirby told FOX10.

He told FOX10 he was excited about the engineering battalion unit, especially since he and his son will be together in Afghanistan.

"We have a lot of soldiers that are really just doing a good job and everyone's just really excited to go over there, do what we have to do, and get home as soon as we can and bring everybody home safely," he said.
