SEAGOVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) - About 100 Texas National Guard soldiers are heading to Africa Friday afternoon.

They’re going to the Horn of Africa as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.  It’s actually a part of the war in Afghanistan, but it’s focused on stopping terrorism and piracy in that part of northeastern Africa.

The men and women of the Texas National Guard’s Alpha Troop leave from Seagoville at 1 p.m. Friday.
