FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Fort Bragg soldiers are very used to overseas deployments.
But several hundred soldiers will be heading to a different destination this spring.
The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/Z2FI6t ) that members of the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade are heading to Kosovo.
The brigade headquarters and 1st Squadron, 38th Cavalry Regiment, will take over an assignment that has been largely held by National Guard and Army Reserve units for the past decade.
Outgoing brigade commander Col. Xavier Brunson says the Kosovo assignment will present a different set of challenges than those faced by the soldiers who have been going to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Brunson said the soldiers will work with local officials to help ensure freedom of movement between ethnic enclaves.
The United States has had forces in Kosovo since the late 1990s.
